CLACKAMAS COUNTY, Ore. (KGW/NBC) - An Oregon man was arrested on felony drug charges after inadvertently dialing 911 just before a drug deal Monday, Molalla police said.
An emergency dispatcher got the call just after midnight and heard what she thought was a drug deal, said Officer Aaron Christopherson. The dispatcher tracked the phone's GPS signal and it led officers to an alley about a block away from the police department.
Two people sitting a car nearby denied having a working cell phone, but the officer spoke loudly and the dispatcher confirmed she could hear him.
"This, I will say, is a first, and got a chuckle around the department," Christopherson said. "They don't make it that easy for us, usually."
