RACINE -- A criminal in Racine calls the police, and gets himself arrested.

Cedrick Jones dropped a stolen cell phone while running from the cops on Tuesday. Later that night, Jones called that same cell phone, thinking he could meet whoever found it and get it back. He didn't realize he was talking to police.

They did meet him, and Jones was promptly arrested.
