Burglars break into abandoned building to steal copper wire only to find officers and K-9's conducting a training exercise inside...oops
ANTIOCH -- Antioch police unwittingly surprised two hapless burglars Tuesday night when officers -- and their dogs -- arrived for a training exercise at an abandoned building where the pair were attempting to steal copper wire.
To the burglars' dismay, the officers arrived at 6:12 p.m. at the 40,000-square-foot building at 1700 West 4th St.
For the exercise, an officer entered and hid inside, and the other officers and their dogs then were to find and "apprehend" him.
As is routine, one of the dog handlers shouted an announcement before the search -- that a police dog was about to be deployed and that anyone inside should give up or risk being bit.
To their surprise, James Ayers, 26, of Bethel Island, "wisely decided that he did not want to be bitten by a police dog and exited his hiding place," said Antioch police Sgt. Tammany Brooks.
The officers then decided to conduct a real building search, whereupon they found and arrested Frederick Guilliee, 38, of Antioch.
Ayers was arrested on suspicion of commercial burglary, possession of a controlled substance and possession of drug paraphernalia and was being held in lieu of $25,000 bail at the West County Detention Facility, according to Antioch police and the Contra Costa Sheriff's Office.
Guilliee was arrested on suspicion of commercial burglary and a warrant for failure to appear in court in a grand theft case and was being held in lieu of $40,000 bail at County Jail in Martinez.

better to be lucky than good any day. Most copper thieves moved up from picking up soda cans so not the smartest bunch.

We dallied under
Vine maples and sapling alders
Searched for lady slippers
Found blackberry riots and
An old skid road
Brought ghost ferns and
Hollows filled with
While waves wrapped
Intricate lacings of weeds
'Round mule spinners
His cyanotic eyes
Were hard enough to make
The sun turn tail and
Tender enough to attract me
To his world of illusion

Wow. I opened this ready to tell you it's an old story...only to realize the same damn thing happened somewhere else.
A couple of months ago (maybe less, my memory sucks), 2 or 3 people were caught stealing copper from a vacated nursing home in Gainesville that is now used by the city and county K9 units. The kicker? Signs EVERYWHERE stating that's it's a K9 training facility/government building.

And to think that this happened in California. As Bill Engvall would say "Here's your sign."
