Cellphone robber calls Seattle police to complain

SEATTLE — Seattle police were able to return a stolen cellphone when the suspect called to complain the victim was following her and refusing to leave her alone.

The 20-year-old woman called 911 Saturday to say a man was following her and accusing her of taking his phone.

KOMO reports officers found the caller with a man who said his phone had been taken while he was sitting on a bus with his eyes closed listening to music.

The woman denied taking the phone until officers noticed a bulge in her pocket and found the victim’s phone along with three grams of crack cocaine.

She was arrested for investigation of robbery and drug possession.
