The Late Night Robbery – Fantastic Story!

An elderly man named James Andy from England was going up to bed when his wife had told him he had left the garden shed lights ON which she can see from the window.

James said “ok” and walked to the back door to turn them off. While doing so, he saw that there were people in the shed stealing things. 

James phoned the police and said “Help, There are people in my garden shed stealing my property”

The operator at the desk replied “Sir, we have no available units at the moment. Please lock your doors and stay inside the house. We will send an officer as soon as one becomes available.”

James hung up the phone and counted to 30… He then called back and said “Hi, I called a couple seconds ago about people stealing from my shed… You don’t have to worry about sending anyone, I shot and killed both men. The dogs are eating them right now…” He hung up the phone…

Within 3 minutes 6 Police cars showed up. Along with a SWAT team, 2 fire trucks, a Police Chopper, a coroner and a paramedic. They caught the thieves red handed and took them away.

A cop said to James… “I thought you said you shot and killed them?”

James replied “I thought you said there was nobody available!”
