Butt dialing landed robbers in jail


Published on May 17, 2013

Two men from California are facing criminal charges after they accidentally dialed 911. When the operator answered and asked what was the emergency, no one responded and she simply listened. Over the next half an hour, the men talked about everything from how to find drugs to breaking into a car. The operator heard a window smash and the men’s excitement over finding prescription drugs. As it turns out, one of the men accidentally sat on his cell phone and the device dialed 911 on its own. The operator was able to track down the two 20-year-olds through their phone location and dispatched an officer to pull them over. RT’s Margaret Howell explains.
