Two retail theft suspects were arrested after one of them pocket dialed 911 from the getaway car, allowing police to locate the suspects as they were attempting to sell the stolen merchandise, Madison police said.
Police said the suspects, Jason S. Hamielec, 29, and Brian A. Johnson, 28, both of Madison, stole DVDs and computer games from the Target store on Junction Road on Madison's far West Side about 5:30 p.m. Tuesday.
While inside their getaway sport utility vehicle, the suspects talked about where they might get the best prices for stolen merchandise, and they decided on the Video X-Change at 3002 Atwood Ave., police said.
The suspects pulled into a parking lot near the Video X-Change and noticed a couple of Madison Police Department squad cars. They were then quickly surrounded by several Madison police officers, a couple with their guns drawn, according to a Madison Police Department news release.
