Car Theifs Arrested After Butt Dialing 9-1-1 While Stealing a Car [VIDEO]
Everyone has received a call from somebody’s butt before. It is always that call where it takes you a minute to realize that the person didn’t intentionally try to call you but just sat on their phone wrong. A car thief out of Fresno California accidentally butt dialed 9-1-1 during a theft.
According to ABC News
The call, which went to 911, started like any other call to the police dispatcher, with the operator asking, “What is your emergency?”
But when no one answered, the operator didn’t hang up, instead staying on the line and listening to the pair, who police identified as Nathan Teklemariam and Carson Rinehart, both 20, as they talked about wanting to do drugs. It wasn’t long before the conversation turned to breaking into a car.
“Get the bolt and give me the hammer just in case,” one of the two voices on the phone said.
Shortly after that statement, the dispatcher heard a window shatter and the people on the phone started yelling that they found prescription drugs.
