'scuse me officer, can you please arrest me?

Last week, a young man with short blond hair and earrings stole two cell phones from a convenience store in Orem, Utah.  In the process of the theft, he managed to leave behind a slip of paper with an address on it.

The store management contacted the police and gave them a description of the thief and the slip of paper he left behind.

Naturally, the investigating officer immediately went to pay a visit to the address.   As the officer was on his way, he was flagged down by a driver who asked for directions-- to the address that was on the slip of paper. 

The officer then noticed that the guy asking for directions looked remarkably like the person who had been described by the store manager.

The man, now identified as John White, had the incredibly bad luck of asking for directions from the very officer who was looking for him.

John was arrested after the police found the two cell phones-- which he was still carrying.  Charges are pending.   [www_metro_co_uk]
