BOSTON, Ga. (AP) — A man apparently felt so bad about breaking the law that he called police three times to confess, according to police in Georgia.
Lt. Tim Watkins of the Thomas County Sheriff’s Office told the Thomasville Times-Enterprise
A Boston police officer went looking for the Chevrolet Impala and 29-year-old Quent Rashed Lankford, but could find neither. Lankford called back again, and finally called a third time to say he had broken into a convenience store and was drinking beer.
“He wanted to confess and turn himself in,” Watkins said. “He called three times.”
That was enough for Boston police to track down and arrest Lankford. The car was later found in Thomasville.
Lankford was charged with second-degree burglary, and theft charges are pending. He’s jailed awaiting a bail hearing. It’s unclear if Lankford has a lawyer.
