Burglar calls in false report

As deputies were closing in on a burglary in progress in Milton, the burglar tried to divert them by reporting a fake break-in at another business, the Santa Rosa sheriff's office told pnj.com.

Two deputies did leave Kiley's Superette, but one continued to search and found Travis Laseter, 35, in the back of the store hiding behind a door.

And how could authorities be sure Laseter made the call? Dispatchers returned his call, after he was in custody in the back of a sheriff's cruiser.
