The Dalek Kidnapping Plan

You thought that it could only happen in the movies, but James Wakefield had a plan to win back his girlfriend's love: have a friend kidnap her, so he could be a hero and rescue her!

And as if that's not strange enough, there's the bit about a Dalek voice-changer helmet:

[James Wakefield] offered his friend Aaron Rawson £20,000 to take the woman to a wood and threaten to attack her, while wearing the helmet to disguise his voice.

Wakefield, 28, would then turn up and "save" her in the hope of winning her back, the court heard.

Rawson, 21, claimed he thought Wakefield was joking until he turned up with the £40 helmet he had bought at Woolworths, along with night vision goggles, handcuffs, an air pistol, a balaclava, a boiler suit and a knife block.

If he chickened out an didn't do it, how did the cops find out to prosecute him? Did he call the police and tell them of the plan? If so, he ended up screwing himself with a conspiracy to commit kidnapping charge. It seems sort of foolish for him to turn in his friend like that, instead of just trying to go back and try and convince his friend that his plan was stupid. Now both of them have a very serious crime on their records.

I don't get it. How did the police find out about the plot?

And this is not the kind of thing you do to someone you love. I can see why the woman broke up with the guy.
