TGIS: Thank God It's Schadenfreude! (136)

This week's joy in the misfortune of others comes courtesy of the Associated Press (from Wednesday, October 10; link good at time of posting):
Talk about a wrong turn. Three teens suspected of burglarizing vehicles were arrested after they attempted to elude a police car by turning into a police station.

An area resident reported the break-ins about 3 a.m. Monday and gave police a description of the teens and their car.

Officers spotted the car - and it appeared the driver noticed the officers, police spokesman Joel DeSpain said. He turned right, apparently in an attempt to avoid the squad car.

"They turned right into the East District Station, " DeSpain said. "Then we arrested them. "
