BOCA RATON, Fla. (AP) – A carjacking suspect called 911 and turned himself in to police after he crashed a stolen sport utility vehicle twice and got lost while fleeing the crime scene, authorities said.

Claude King, 31, called police from a Palm Springs, Fla., pay phone and confessed to stealing the SUV on Tuesday night, the Palm Beach Post reported.

“Um, I committed a crime,” he told the police dispatcher. “I stole a vehicle.”

He asked for officers to respond to his location, but when the dispatcher asked where the vehicle was, King didn’t have an answer.

“I couldn’t even tell you,” he said. “I don’t even know where I’m at.”

Boca Raton police found King waiting on a curb. He was being held without bail in the Palm Beach County Jail.
