Hahaha, this is really dumb!

BERLIN - Two would-be thieves called in their own crime to police in Germany after they could not escape from a broken-down elevator over the weekend, police said in a statement. "This sounds really dumb," one of the thieves told police in Cologne over the elevator's emergency phone, "But I'm afraid that we wanted to break in and the elevator has gotten stuck." When police arrived they found the two thieves aged 31 and 37 stuck in the elevator of an office building. The thieves allegedly broke into the building and were attempting to reach a higher floor when the elevator became stuck, the police said. They decided to phone for help when one thief injured his hand attempting to pry open the door. Firemen eventually freed the men and they were arrested.
