If this was all an elaborate heist plan . . . next time, maybe try something WAY simpler.
There's a 40-year-old guy named Jermaine Nichols in Scarborough, Ontario, Canada, and he called 911 on Friday morning because he needed to be RESCUED. Apparently he was out hiking and got stuck on a steep cliff.
But his phone died before he could give them his specific location.
So firefighters and paramedics drove up the cliffs to hunt for him. And while they searched . . . he suddenly appeared, hopped into a fire truck, and tried to STEAL IT.
But cops were also part of the rescue effort . . . so he was quickly stopped and arrested.
He's been charged with attempted theft and failure to comply.
