An elderly woman with some memory problems called emergency services to report that her car had been broken into. She was hysterical when she explained her situation to the dispatcher.
“They’ve stolen the stereo, the steering wheel, the brake pedal and even the accelerator,” she said frantically.
The dispatcher answered, “Stay calm ma’am. An officer is on the way.”
Once arriving at the scene and understanding the situation, the officer radioed back in to the same dispatcher.
“Disregard,” he said. “She sat in the back seat by mistake.”
