My favorites are usually dumb kids like this one: houses under construction, neighbor in a completed house says kids are inside smoking and smashing things. We show up, couple bikes in the driveway, can hear them upstairs. It was fall, just had lots of rain. I'm guessing they saw or heard us pull up because we hear yelling and banging, then just more yelling from the back yard. 6 of them had jumped out ~10 foot patio doors into about 3 feet of mud, and were now stuck.
Dragged 4 of them to our cars where they immediately turned on their other two friends. When we went to their houses both tried to deny it until we asked their parents to go find their shoes, and guaranteed that theyd be covered in clay mud. They all got hefty tickets because they were not shit heads. In reality if they had just come outside for us, they would have been let go with warnings because there was no damage in the house.
Another, not a getaway story but I pulled over a drunk driver who identified himself as let's say "John Smith". Well my computer tells me that this guy died a year prior, and that he has a brother who sometimes uses his identity. Apparently he had no idea his brother had died. Not his best night I'm sure.
