ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (KRQE) – An Albuquerque father called police on his own son after they say he showed up on a stolen electronic shopping cart.

According to the criminal complaint, 35-year-old William Lancaster took the cart from the Smith’s on Montgomery and Louisiana.

He told officers he found the cart in an alley, but they didn’t believe him and he was arrested.

Lancaster has a long arrest history, everything from shoplifting to huffing fumes in public.
