Woman Reports Self to Police While Stealing a CarLee County Sheriff’s Office

A Florida woman was arrested last weekend after calling 911 on herself while attempting to steal a car, police said. She allegedly told officers that it was part of her video game training, and is facing trespassing charges.

Christy Lee Turman, 37, wanted to let the authorities know that she was attempting to steal a car, according to the Lee County Sheriff’s Office. On the released recording of the 911 call, you can hear Turman admit to the bizarre scenario.

“Because I’m trying to steal a car that’s not legally mine. So, y’all better come make a report,” said Turman. The 911 operator responded with “I’m reporting this.”


Police arrived at the car dealership parking lot and found Turman exiting the driver’s side of a Toyota Corolla that she was allegedly trying to steal. While being arrested and charged with trespassing, Turman told the responding officers that she was training for the video game Call of Duty: Black Ops. She wanted to notify the police so that she could steal the car legally.

This was not the first time Turman has been in trouble with the law. She has a criminal history that includes petty theft, robbery, and aggravated battery. However, this seems to be the first time that she actually called the police on herself.

Calling the police and reporting your own crime is next-level questionable. Although we are sure the car dealership was happy that it played out that way.
