Brits Nab Thieves with Help from Dallas

With the help of the internet, a man in Dallas helped bust some thieves in Liverpool, reports the Dallas Morning News. The unknown Dallasite was watching a webcast of Mathew Street in the Beatles quarter of the English town when he noticed a burglary in progress. He picked up the phone and called the police in the UK city, where the Bobbies dashed to the scene and arrested them.

Liverpool council spokesman said "Often people see a crime and look the other way. But this guy being how many miles away picked up the phone... It was very civic-minded of him, whoever he is."

All in a Texan's days work!

Yeah baby! Leave it to an American to speak out...and a Texan to boot!

I am just glad that the police in the UK actually responded. They're doing better than the Philly police, that is for sure.
