A bit of humor crackled across the police radio frequencies Tuesday night in San Francisco after a man failed to notice that a jewelry store was closing and got locked inside, prompting responding officers to suggest he might have to sleep on the floor.
@ScannerSays, a twitter account dedicated to monitoring San Francisco police radio channels, was the first on the virtual scene.
A dispatcher, who can barely get out the call description through bursts of giggling, tells the responding officer that the unidentified man was apparently so engrossed in the jewelry at the Majestic Gallery on Jefferson Street at Fisherman’s Wharf that he failed to realize the store had closed and all the employees had left.
“Let’s get that genius out of there,” the officer says.
“He says there’s a chain across the front door,” the dispatcher responds.
After a bit of back-and-forth trying unsuccessfully to find contact information for the store’s owner, the officer comes to the only logical conclusion.
“This idiot may just have to sleep on the floor then,” he states.
But don’t take our word for it. Listen to the exchange below, again courtesy of the Twitter account @ScannerSays, which posted it to SoundCloud.
