Radnor police said that Ryan Letchford, 21, and Jeffrey Olson, 22, both of Marlton, N.J., were attending a party at a condominium in Radnor Friday night into early Saturday morning when they wandered down to the parking lot and entered Connor's van.
Because the van showed no signs of a break-in, Connor said, he must have left the side door unlocked.
Radnor police said that the men apparently were trying to take goofy pictures of themselves pretending to be arrested, when they somehow got locked inside the van.
While stuck inside, Letchford and Olson tried to kick through the metal cage that separates the rear of the vehicle from the driver's compartment, police said.
When the men didn't return to the party, a friend went to look for them and found them in Connor's van, police said. When he wasn't able to open the door either, he called police at 3:57 a.m.
Authorities, in turn, awoke Connor.
"I came down and unlocked the doors, and 'Dumb and Dumber' pranced out of the van," Connor said. "They looked a little embarrassed."
Inside the van, officers found cigarette butts and "a large amount of saliva," police said. It's unclear why the men apparently were spitting in the van.
Both were charged with attempted theft of a motor vehicle, public drunkenness and criminal mischief, police said.
