This, kids, is why you should A: always lock your phone and B: never add 911 to your contacts.
Onondaga County Sheriff Kevin Walsh says police already looking for a suspicious person got the unlikely assist when one of the men “pocket dialed” his cellphone’s emergency number while driving near the scene of an earlier heist.
As a dispatcher relayed the conversation to deputies, the men discussed their plans, described their surroundings and even commented, “there go the cops now.”
Walsh says that was enough for a deputy to turn around and stop the Kia Sportage full of tools stolen from a business in the Syracuse suburb of Clay.
the unidentified overly phone happy fellows now face grand larceny and possession of stolen property charges.
