Police Led to Drug Suspect After His Phone Pocket Dials 911


A 911 dispatcher in Georgia got a surprising call from a drug suspect on Wednesday.

The call was apparently placed as the result of a pocket dial by the suspect, report the Gainesville Times and CBSAtlanta.com. The Hall County dispatcher heard talk of a drug deal involving prescription narcotics, police say, and dispatched a police officer to the scene—a Waffle House restaurant.

“Talk about a smart phone,” the Gainesville Times says. “This one called police as its owner, now a drug suspect in jail, was involved in an alleged illegal transaction.” Police charged 18-year-old Daniel Moore, a Waffle House employee, with possession of Hydrocodone and Xanax, according to the stories.
