Have you been pocket-dialed?
You know, the phone rings, you pick up, and you can hear what’s going on?
Well, it’s especially important not to pocket-dial the place you just robbed.
Two sisters were arrested after inadvertently pocket dialing the hotel they had allegedly just robbed.
Naples police said a woman wearing sunglasses and a black bandana covering her mouth entered the InnPlace Hotel Nov. 18 and put her hands in her pockets, indicating the presence of a weapon…
… the woman demanded money from the register and fled with an unspecified amount of cash, police said
So far so good, but these women had no luck at all
When the suspect demanded money from the register, the clerk complied. Then, per the suspect’s orders, the victim laid down on the floor while the robber escaped.
Once she was safe, the clerk called the Naples Police Department, but while she was reporting the incident, the hotel’s front desk phone rang. When the woman answered, she heard a conversation between a voice that¬†she told police belonged to the person who had just robbed the place,¬†and Ashlie Alewine, 22, a former hotel employee who had just been fired two days earlier, according to the Broward-Palm Beach New Times.
It hasn’t been mentioned for some time, but get read for Silly First Name Syndrome.
The suspect, who was later identified as Alewine’s sister, Nakilya Wright (18), ¬†had pocket dialed the hotel and, without realizing it, described the robbery in detail, telling the other person how exactly everything went down, step-by-step, according to the paper.
Here’s a Huffington Post video about it.
