Two thieves who got their signals crossed ended up in police custody Wednesday in Murrieta, police said.

Murrieta Police officers responded at 11:30 a.m. to a call of shoplifting in progress at the Best Buy on Madison Avenue. Employees told the police dispatcher that two men had selected more than $1,000 in merchandise before one of the men, identified as Edmund Long of San Jacinto, left the store. The second man, identified as Derrek Dysterheft of Hemet, was seen by employees loitering in the back of the store with the merchandise, talking on his phone near an emergency exit on the south side of the store.

About the same time, employees heard knocking on an emergency exit on the north side of the store. Police officers arrived, located Long near a vehicle outside the north exit, and detained him. Additional officers found Dysterheft still waiting inside the store by the south exit.

Both men were placed under arrest. Dysterheft, 27, faces charges of conspiracy to commit a crime and attempted grand theft. Long, also 27, faces multiple drug and theft charges after narcotics paraphernalia and stolen items were found in the vehicle.
