Two Car Thieves Accidentally Pocket Dial 911 During a Robbery

If you're going to attempt to break into a car, MAKE SURE YOU DON'T POCKET DIAL 911 FIRST! That should really go without saying. But two men from Fresno, Calif. learned that lesson the hard way recently when they got busted breaking into cars after one of them accidentally pocket dialed the police.

Nathan Teklemariam and Carson Rinehart, who are both 20, were charged with breaking and entering, possession of stolen property, and conspiracy earlier this week after one of them butt dialed 911 while they broke into a car. The 911 dispatcher who received the call stayed on the line for several minutes, heard everything that the men said during the robbery, and alerted police as to their whereabouts. The cops then paid the men a visit and told them what they had done before placing them under arrest.

"We really called 911?" one of the men asked police. "Damn."

Damn is right. You guys are morons.
