Pocket dialing calls police to Oregon drug deal

Monday - 3/4/2013, 1:28pm  ET

MOLALLA, Ore. (AP) -- Police in the Oregon town of Molalla say a dispatcher received a cellphone call and overheard a drug deal taking place.

A phone in the woman's pocket inadvertently dialed 911 early Tuesday and dispatchers heard a conversation with a man about drugs.

KGW reports (http://bit.ly/13tEKpX ) police tracked the GPS signal to a car in an alley about a block away. An officer who arrived at the scene could be heard over the phone by dispatchers.

The officer found methamphetamine and arrested a 25-year-old man on multiple drug charges. The 25-year-old woman was cited for possessing marijuana -- and hung up her phone.
