GA man pocket dials 911; police overhear drug deal

It's the second such "pocket dialing leads to arrest" story in less than a month, and you have to admit, it makes one wonder a) what kind of cell phones these criminals are using, and b) why they don't use a belt holster.

Save Big on Anime Authorities say a Georgia man "pocket-dialed" 911. The dispatcher on the other end of the line overheard people discussing a drug deal. The call was made around 1:30 a.m. on Wednesday morning.

Col. Jeff Strickland said the dispatcher could overhear several people speaking about a drug deal involving prescription drugs.

A deputy was sent to a Gainesville Waffle House restaurant, from where the police determined the call originated. The deputy eventually found the phone in an employee's pocket.

Daniel Moore, 18, was charged with possession of hydrocodone and alprazolam tablets.
