Illinois Man Tries Testing Police Response
If you ever wanted to test police response times, you may want to think again.
Mark Samano, 33, of Berwyn, attempted such an experiment earlier this month, Elmhurst police said he was taken to the DuPage County Jail and charged with a felony.
A call for police came from a parking deck in downtown Elmhurst, Illinois. The caller reported that his girlfriend refuse to let him into his car. Plus, she was keeping his cat. He then said he was upset because his cat escape and he couldn't find it.
The cops showed up at the scene. There was no cat or girlfriend. The suspect was sitting in his parked car. He was questioned by the cops. At that point, he was no longer upset. He admitted that the whole thing was a lie and that he was conducting an experiment.
The suspect wanted to find out how long it would take for the police to show up. It was faster than he had predicted. He was immediately arrested. Surprisingly, no drugs were found in his car. Please never try this at home.
