COPENHAGEN, Denmark >> A car thief had to call the police to ask for help after he was trapped inside the car he was trying to steal.
Police in Trondheim said the young man, who wasn’t identified, called the law enforcement from a car dealership in Norway’s third-largest city to say he was “stuck” inside the car.
Norwegian broadcaster NRK said the man was aged 17 and was known to the police for petty crimes, and that it was unclear why the doors of the car, parked outside the shop, had locked.
Police said on Twitter that officers hurried to the scene today “to get him out and into detention.”
Ung biltjuv ringte fra bilforretning på Tunga etter mislykket forsøk på å stjele en bil. Vel inne i bilen ble han sittende fast bak låste dører. Da er det greit å kunne ringe politiet for å be om hjelp. Patrulje var raskt på stedet og fikk ham ut og inn til arresten.
