LAPD Communications Division workers in the Teletype department today got a shock when an unused teletype started printing 'WRU' - the code for 'Who and Where are you?'

They traced the line back to Queensland, Australia, but not before the teletype printed out the make, model and licence plate number of a vehicle that was flagged as wanted. It also gave a description of the two occupants.

Los Angeles Police Department personnel later located the car and the same two occupants, and brought them in for questioning over the car.

The teletype operator communicated with the Australian teletype operator asking why the car was wanted.

The reply was simple: 'OCCUPANTS HATED, JUST BOOK EM ON WHATEVER CHARGES STICK' before the line was disconnected.
