Burglar calls tow truck for getaway
MASSACHUSETTS — Police say a burglar tried to make a getaway using a tow truck.
After attempting to flee the scene of a crime, police say the burglar got stuck in mud and called for assistance.
Police say he told the tow truck driver he was helping his aunt move.
The pick-up was loaded with TVs, electronics, cameras and jewelry he had just swiped from a nearby house.
The tow truck driver said that the suspect never gave away that he had just robbed a house.
Just moments after the burglar was towed from the mud, the guy sped off through the front yard.
Police traced the suspected burglar's license plate to a man who just finished serving a Rhode Island prison sentence.
