Intruder, Homeowner Call Police On Each Other

Intruder, Homeowner Call Police On Each Other

Timothy Chapek

The Daily Mail

March 08, 2011

PORTLAND, OR – A suspected trespasser has been accused of breaking into a house and then calling the police for help when the owner arrived.

Timothy Chapek was rumbled when the owner, accompanied by two German shepherd dogs, heard him taking a shower in the house in Portland, Oregon.

So instead of facing the man, Chapek, 24, who feared the householder may be armed, locked himself in the bathroom, dialled 911 and waited for police to ‘free’ him.

The homeowner also called police.

When officers arrived they arrested Chapek and charged him with first-degree criminal trespass. He is now being held at the Miltnomah County Jail.

His may not be the most foolish 911 call made this year.

In January, Cynthia Colstonm, of Florida, was arrested after calling the emergency line four times complaining that she had received a bad manicure.

And Robert Michelson, 21, a student in Farmington, Connecticut, was arrested after calling police to ask how much trouble he could get in by growing marijuana.

John Finch,44, called police after spending three days trapped inside a home in Brandywine, Delaware, where he helped himself to the owner’s drinks cabinet.

    It's Just so tough to practice your Dastardly profession these days. Homeowners have gotten smarter and the crooks have gotten dumber. A collision of stupidly in a sea of mediocrity.

    I hate to say it, but this isn't the 1st call like this I've heard of. The most memorable one was when a turd broke into a home & had to call the police to help him get out of a house in which the owner's Lion had him pinned on the ground & was licking him. What a douche...lol!

    "Uhhh, hello..... 911? Yeah, I broke into a house and the owner or the guy who lives here had the nerve to return with two really big and hungry dogs. Yeah..... Can you come over right away? Yeah...... I'll stay right here in the shower. Stay on hold? Yeah..... I can do that."

    Absolutely PRICELESS......... It doesn't get any easier, better or funnier than this.
