    Busted Boosting Cop-Occupied Van

    CHICAGO - It was hard to say if the cops or the robbers were more shocked when two men tried to burglarize a minivan that was occupied by a police officer on an undercover surveillance.

    The incident happened in a commuter parking lot. Transit police were watching the lot after commuters reported having stereos, cash, cell phones and CDs stolen from their cars.

    The officer watched as the men got out of their car, looked in the windows of parked cars and pulled on door handles.

    When the pair opened the van's sliding side door, Officer Jessie Watts Jr. jumped out with his gun drawn and told them to get down. Police said they later found stolen stereo equipment and burglary tools in the men's car. (AP)

    That's too funny. I have only been in a van like that one time. We were watching a dope house. Bust didn't go down, but it was fun just the same. The van had cameras hidden all over it. It was fun to watch the kids come up and look at the van, punch it, kick it etc. They all knew what it was, we didn't fool anybody...
