Would-be thief ends up trapped in trunk of Missoula car, calls 911 for help

MISSOULA -

A 31-year-old Missoula man was arrested last night after he called 911 from the trunk of a car. 

Police say the male was attempting to break into the car in the 1800 block of the South 3rd Street West and managed to get himself locked in the trunk.

He apparently found the trunk lid open and attempted to get into the vehicle by going through the back seat. Police say the vehicle was equipped with an automatic closing trunk lid, which trapped him inside. 

The man has been charged with two counts of criminal trespass, and one count of criminal mischief.
