“Go Ahead And Arrest Me, That Car Is Stolen”

ASHEBORO N.C. – In a bizzare call officers with the Asheboro Police Department responding to assist on a medical call ended up arresting a man who admitted to having a stolen car.

Early this morning at just after 3 a.m. an officer with the Asheboro Police Department responded to a medical call at the Comfort Inn on E Dixie Dr. According to a police department the officer found Ricky Helms inside the business stating he didn’t feel right. As they waited on EMS to arrive Mr Helms turned the conversation to the vehicle saying it was out of gas and a friend was going to get gas for it, before saying “go ahead and arrest me, that car is stolen”. When officers checked, sure enough the vehicle had been reported stolen out of Thomasville and Mr Helms was arrested for possession of a stolen vehicle. He was booked into the Randolph County Jail and was set to appear in court today.
