Using Lyft to ride away from a crime scene? It almost worked...

According to the Denver Post, an alleged car burglar in Jefferson County was arrested after he attempted to hail a Lyft ride in the early hours of the morning.

The suspect was described as 'emerging from bushes' and getting into a Lyft car, where he was found to have stolen items and drug paraphernalia on him, 9NEWS reports. We're unsure if he was charged for the ride, but he is facing  multiple criminal charges.

It seems like we've heard this story before... oh, wait, that was a Geico ad.
