Sounds like an FML for the police guys who showed up. Today, some idiot called us in thinking he was getting robbed. The 'noises' he heard was his cat. FML
If it had been in the UK they probably wouldn't even have shown up. Our neighbours were burgled a few months ago and they called the police while the burglars were still in the house. The operator told him there were no available units in the area and that they should stay quiet and not do anything, but when he said he'd stop them himself she immediately dispatched a miraculously available police car to their house. He lamped one of the burglars who was in his (thankfully empty) daughters room trying to steal her laptop and when the police showed up, surprise surprise they arrested him for assault, and the dude who was robbing them was only charged with trespassing because he didn't actually remove anything from the premises.
Ugh, this happened to me once. I was just robbing somebody's house and could hear them freaking out upstairs. Fortunately, I was wearing my fursuit, so they mistook me for their cat.
