I was looking at this tweet from the Police is Saxony, and I couldn't help but to be stranged...
Einen Trickbetrüger stellten unsere Einsatzkräfte in #Dresden.
I can imagine what they were trying to say but... To me this sentence sounds as the police put a con man on the street! That is probably the exact opposite of what happened, no?
How does "stellen" mean "put away", instead of "put in". They are exact opposites, no?
