    An entire crime's planning, execution and capture all caught on 911/tape? Dang. What are the odds? Apparently, 100% in the case of Dufus, there.

    Kudos to the 911 operator to realize there were no "ands," "ifs" or "butts" about this call: busted.

    Just watch. The idiots will plead innocent at their arraignment. "... one of the suspects said in the recording. "Wow, what the [expletive] did I do?" "

    Wonder what their defense attorney’s explanation will be at their trial. While I have no desire to do anything illegal that is why my phone gets it’s own holster also.

    I wonder if this will be used to try making the recording inadmissable since the BG's weren't aware of the recording (wouldn't surprise me):


    Recording Phone Calls and Conversations | Digital Media Law Project

    When must you get permission from everyone involved before recording?

    Twelve states require the consent of every party to a phone call or conversation in order to make the recording lawful. These "two-party consent" laws have been adopted in California, Connecticut, Florida, Illinois, Maryland, Massachusetts, Montana, Nevada, New Hampshire, Pennsylvania and Washington (Hawai'i is also in general a one-party state, but requires two-party consent if the recording device is installed in a private place). Although they are referred to as "two-party consent" laws, consent must be obtained from every party to a phone call or conversation if it involves more than two people. In some of these states, it might be enough if all parties to the call or conversation know that you are recording and proceed with the communication anyway, even if they do not voice explicit consent.

    Either they robbed somebody they knew or just got extreme lucky that they wanted to drugs and the car they broke into just happened to have prescription drugs (doubtful).

    ...it would be entirely reasonable that 911 recordings have no expectation of privacy and anything from them would be admissible in court...maybe PEK can answer that one...

    There are times that you may NOT want to fix stupid.

    Left to its own recourse, stupid tends to fix itself, often permanently.
