A man from US, who stole GPS (Global Positioning System), was arrested after he called police to ask them for help because he got lost.


Andrew James Joffe was unaware that a warrant had been issued for his arrest on driving offences when he contacted the authorities in Polk City, Florida, Metro.co.uk reported.

Grady Judd, Sheriff of Polk County said that they had people with warrants who called them to turn themselves in before, but it was unusual for someone with an active warrant, who just burgled a car, to get lost and calling them for help.

The 24-year-old had managed to get lost on rural roads in the early hours of Thursday morning and feared that he was being pursued by wild hogs.
