Officer nabs alleged thief who asks for directions
Submitted By AP Wire Service
OREM, Utah (AP), Mar 25 - Utah police say a man accused of stealing two phones from a convenience store was arrested when he flagged down the investigating officer and asked for directions.
Police say the officer noticed that John White matched the description a store clerk gave of the thief, and the address White wanted turned out to be the same one the officer was checking.
The address had been left on a slip of paper the thief left at a gas station.
White was arrested Tuesday after the officer found he had both phones, along with a small amount of marijuana.
Police say charges are pending.
