I definitely do not believe this, what are the odds that the phone would randomly dial 911, AND that in that moment in time the kid happen to be bragging to his friends about these events...

It was a stolen Cricket phone, many phones when out of minutes allow "emergency only" calls. I agree it does seem pretty hard to believe but it's possible. Anyone dumb enough to be stealing steros and phones is deffinetly dumb enough to get caught like this.

Especially if your stealing a cricket phone.... lol. Maybe it was bar shaped and the last call on the phone was too 911. Pretty unlikely that something like this would happen, but I wouldnt say its impossible.

I dissent...cops are not good guys. Personally for me, a cop has never done anything for me that I couldn't do for myself. In fact I would argue, that this kid's stupidity is the ONLY reason the property was recovered and he was caught. I doubt fingerprints were taken and any kind of realistic detective/police measure done to aid in catching the perp and recovering said stolen property. I had my house broken into and literally thousands of dollars in goods and money stolen, and all the lousy cops did was come and take down a report. No fingerprinting or anything. Hell, they didn't even want detailed descriptions of what was taken! It was a total joke and for all the time I wasted reporting it, I might as well have been at work making money to replace my property. Insurance reimbursement was decent, but even that was a fight! Our police state is only in place for gov't in social control, financial income (ticket writing) and protection of gov't property!
