An elderly man was about to go to bed when he heard noises coming from the back yard. Three men had broken into the garage.
Scared, he called the police.
The dispatcher replied they would send an officer as soon as one became available, but they were all currently out on calls.
The old man waited for a few minutes and called Dispatch again, “Don’t worry about sending an officer. I shot the robbers, and now the dogs are eating their bodies!”
In less than five minutes the police were all over the place and captured the robbers red-handed!
One of the officers asked the old man, “We were told you shot the robbers and your dogs were eating them.”
The old man replied, “I was told there weren’t any officers available.”
