The police's Facebook post also used the hashtag: #TheirActionsRaisedAFewEyebrows.

Two men arrested for squatting in a Moreno Valley residence were told by police "nice try" after they allegedly attempted to run, but were caught anyway Monday.

Moreno Valley police said Avelino Mora and Andrew García were discovered inside a vacant building in the 13000 block of Persimmon Road, and attempted to run.

"No problem for two Supermen in tan and green," the Facebook post read, indicating the officers managed to capture them despite the two allegedly climbing a wall and running.
