What a pair.
A pair of incompetent career criminals from Philadelphia stole a pickup truck and allegedly plotted to use it to rob a gun story in Tullytown, Pennsylvania.
They managed to steal precisely zero firearms and only removed one sheep’s head to the roof (I swear that I’m not making this up) from Mike’s Guns and Sporting Goods before they found themselves surrounded by Tullytown police. They then played their ace in the hole: one of them placed a 911 call claiming that a body had been discovered across town.
The suspects expected the cops to rush off to search for the body.
The 911 call center traced the GPS location of the phone making to call back to the surrounded gun store.
Presumably, the SWAT officers just looked at one another and shook their heads at the stupidity of the criminals.
Eventually, the less-than-dynamic duo surrendered after scurrying for hours like rats through the ventilation system from the gun shop to the next door pizza place and back.
They then claimed that they weren’t actually trying to steal weapons, but were homeless, and were just trying to find someplace warm to stay.
