Police say a man accidentally dialed 911 while he and a buddy were breaking into a car, unknowingly leading Fresno, Calif., officers right to their location.
The two men, Nathan Teklemariam and Carson Rinehart, both 20, face charges of breaking and entering, possession of stolen property and conspiracy, according to Fox News.
KGPE.com explains that the 911 dispatcher could hear people speaking in the background, so he listened to see if anyone was in need of assistance.
It didn't take long for the dispatcher to realize that the men weren't so much in danger as they were up to no good. On the recording made available to KGPE.com, one of the men can be heard to say, "I just want to smoke weed right now." That's pretty much the least incriminating thing they said.
The mystery was solved when the cops pulled them over. Playing it straight, the police officer asked one of the suspects if he had anything in the vehicle that "shouldn't be in the vehicle."
One of the men said he doesn't, but a quick search of the car yields the stolen property. That's when the police decide to let the men in the butt-dial.
"We really called 911?" one of the suspects said. "Damn."

They’ll need to up their game if they want to steal for the IRS.
I hate it when this happens to me.

“here, hold my phone so I don’t butt-call the po-po” alert!
Was their phone an Obozo phone provided free via our tax $’s?
If so, that was a good investment for our side.
Hindsight is always 20/20.
Lol-—man that would be funny.
If true, maybe the crooks could sue Ohaha?
