A suspect wanted in connection with stealing a gun and drunk driving crashed a rental car, called 9-1-1, and asked for a cab.
Royal Oak Police are calling Thomas Snowden one of the "dumbest" criminals they've ever encountered.
By calling 9-1-1, Snowden basically turned himself in, and made police officers' jobs a whole lot easier.
Police say Snowdens lost control of his rental car, slammed into a guardrail, and took off running along the way dropping his phone and stolen gun.
He also left behind crucial evidence in the car such as his driver's license.
This call was made from a phone at a gas station on 11-mile: Dispatch: Royal Oak 911, what's your emergency?
Caller: Yes, I would like a cab. This is not the cab number is it?
Dispatch: No, this is 911.
Caller: Oh, I'm sorry.
Dispatch: That's ok. What you need a cab for?
Caller: For Washington.
