Now here's a humorous ending to yesterday's manhunt for an armed robbery suspect. Although he evaded police during a five-hour search and closure of a few block area, his continued tomfoolery landed him in cuffs. As told by a local neighborhood watch via the LAPD Senior Lead Officer for the area, here's what happened:

The second suspect was finally caught! How you may ask? The #2 suspect kept calling the #1 suspect cell phone which the police had in their possession. The police triangulated the cell phone calls from suspect #2 and caught suspect #2 at his house or a house. End of story.........

Big whoops.
