DUNWOODY, Ga. -- After allegedly stealing a cellphone at a Dunwoody restaurant, three would-be thieves drove away, probably thinking they had gotten away with it.

And they almost did.

At least until the driver failed to acknowledge a stop sign and collided with a police officer’s patrol car Thursday evening, Dunwoody police said.

No one was injured when the suspects’ white car hit the passenger side of the officer’s car around 6:15 p.m. But all three suspects were arrested without incident, the police department posted on its Facebook page late Thursday. The cellphone was returned to its owner.

The suspects’ names and charges were not released.
