Two "world's most unsuccessful burglars" arrested in Great Britain

Two of the “world’s most unsuccessful burglars” have been arrested in Britain after one of them accidentally called police during a robbery, CNN reports.

A Staffordshire officer called the thieves “the world’s most unlucky burglars” and compared them to the hapless crooks from the movie “Home Alone.” He said one of them mistakenly sat on his phone and dialed 999, the U.K. emergency number, which allowed officers to learn of the crime and eventually overhear their colleagues arresting the hapless duo.
