I said “help,” not “arrest”

squatter.jpgIt’s not every day that someone calls the cops for help winds up behind bars themselves. But that’s what happened when a 25-year-old Nebraska man called the cops for help because someone was trying to break into his apartment. The cops showed up to find that the person trying to break into the apartment was the apartment manager. He was trying to “break in” because the apartment was supposed to be vacant, only now someone was squatting in the apartment and had even gone so far as to change the locks.

So, uhm, yeah. Note to self — if I’m illegally squatting in an apartment, calling the cops may not be the best plan. Especially when, on top of that, there’s weed and grow equipment in my illegal abode.
