    Connecticut Man Accused Of Fake Report To Get Keys Out Of Car

    WEST HAVEN, Conn. (AP) -- A New Haven man who had locked his keys in his car ended up locked up himself.

    Police said Timothy Brown got in trouble after he accidentally locked his keys inside his car last week. Instead of asking for help, the 35-year-old man made up a story about his car being on fire in an attempt to have firefighters help him get inside his car, police said.

    Sgt. Paul Raucci, a West Haven police department spokesman, said firefighters rushed to Brown's car Thursday night believing a fire was in progress.

    ``There was no fire, but they found that he locked his keys in his car,'' Raucci said Monday.

    Brown denied that he reported a car fire to a fire dispatcher. However, officers who reviewed a tape of the conversation between Brown and the dispatcher discovered that he did, in fact, claim a car fire, Raucci said.

    At his arraignment Monday in Milford Superior Court on charges of falsely reporting an incident and interfering with police, Judge John Ronan ordered Brown held in lieu of $25,000 bond.

    When we tell people that is how we get into locked cars, or we use the Hurst tool, they usually say thankyou and never mind!
