Here’s a Head Start

Investigators in Orange County, Fla., said robbers tried to distract law enforcement by calling in a false report of a carjacking. The two suspects, whose names have not been released, called 911 to report a couple was being carjacked at an area grocery store. The unnamed suspects had just pulled off an armed robbery at an apartment complex in another part of town.

They were charged with armed robbery and making a false report. (JW/WFTV Orlando) ...With criminals like that, who needs informants?
