KALAMAZOO, Mich. – Kalamazoo police wish all their cases were this easy to solve.
A breaking and entering suspect inadvertently turned himself into the police after committing his crime on Wednesday.
The 27-year-old man walked into the Department of Public Safety around 4 a.m. He was bleeding from cuts on his arms and hands and apparently was drunk. He told officers he had seen someone breaking into a building.
WWMT-TV, WOOD-TV and the Kalamazoo Gazette report the man told police he wanted to stop the crime, so he climbed into the building and scuffled with the other person.
When officers investigated, it became clear to them the witness actually was the suspect.
The Kalamazoo police say in a statement it "cannot always count on suspects to report their own criminal activity."
