Wanted Man Hands Himself In To Get Some Peace And Quiet During Lockdown
| Last updated
A wanted man has handed himself into the police in a bid to get some 'peace and quiet' because he could no longer take being cooped up with his housemates during lockdown.
We all know the feeling, don't we? *side eyes*...
The suspect, who was wanted on recall to prison, was so fed up with those he was hiding out with he told police he would rather be locked up in jail.
The lag broke his tag off to evade capture, but became so frustrated with his annoying friends he rang the cops to say he was handing himself into Burgess Hill police station in West Sussex yesterday (17 February) afternoon.
Socialising with different households has been banned by the government during the latest national lockdown, with people facing the prospect of spending much more time with their housemates.
Inspector Darren Taylor of Sussex Police said this particular suspect gave up his bid for freedom because he was so fed up spending time with the people he lived with and wanted to try and get some 'peace and quiet'.
Inspector Taylor said: "[The male] rang us and said he was going to hand himself in a Burgess Hill police station and that he had broken his tag off."
The man decided to hand himself in due to issues with the people he was living with, according to the officer. He added: "The man said] he would rather go back to prison then have to spend more time with the people he was living with.
"One in custody and heading back to prison to serve some further time on his own."
At least this guy was actually *known* by the police which is more that can be said for an armed robber who handed himself in to cops last year and they had no idea who he was... awks.
A court heard that Kaine Williams, from Newport, Wales, brandished a knife during the raid of a second-hand clothes store, along with his accomplice Liam Stimpson, 20.
And while the pair managed to make it away from the scene, Williams, 22, gave himself in to local police after seeing his masked face on an appeal.
Despite his identity being concealed, Williams recognised himself and decided the game was up.
Both Williams and Stimpson admitted to a charge of attempted robbery. Williams was sentenced to two years in jail.
The price you pay for honesty - unlucky fella.
