Funny Listen to Some Bumbling Robbers Call 911, Accidentally Confess
Here's one from "Happening Now" for the stupid criminal files. Some burglars in New Mexico were caught thanks to a mistaken call to 911, where one of the suspects ended up confessing to the whole robbery.
In the 911 audio, the caller says "we basically robbed 'em, dude" after the operator answered the apparent pocket-dial.
The man then continued, “Look, I know we should have gotten a lot more, but you know what my only thing is that we got away safe, clean."
Amazingly, the call went on for almost 45 minutes, including the suspects playing some celebratory music.
More details from KRQE-TV in Albuquerque:
Detectives say Aaron Burrell, 37, Marvin Myers, 30, and Yvonne Thyberg, 35, broke into a house on the 300 block of East Hervey Street in late September. After the heist, Burrell unknowingly made an emergency call to 911.
“Yeah, we picked up this f****** TV set, got ahold of it and we got it out of the house,” the caller says.
Details about where the burglary happened to how the three got away from the cops were all detailed in the call. Dispatchers rolled on the nearly 45-minute confession.
“An officer was sent to the address that they mentioned to check on the house and found indeed that it had been burglarized,” said Roswell Police Spokesperson Todd Wildermuth.
Police tracked the call to Burrell’s cell phone. They finally nabbed the three last week.
At one point during the 911 call, you can hear the three rocking out to Bon Jovi’s “Wanted Dead or Alive.”
Burrell and Thyberg are still behind bars. The charges against Myers were dropped.
