Pocket Dialing of 911by Criminal Leads to Arrest of Himself, Two Others
Onondaga County Sheriff Kevin Walsh said that after the call came in, a dispatcher relayed the conversation to deputies. The men described their surroundings and discussed their plans as police listened, and even commented, "there go the cops now."
The dispatcher, still listening in, next heard the driver being asked for his license and registration. The men were arrested on April 26. They face grand larceny and stolen property charges. It's unclear what type of cell phone the suspects were using, but there are smartphone apps that prevent pocket dialing, even if the phone is unlocked.
