Robbery 101: Don’t Pocket-Dial 911 In The Act
NORTH MANKATO, Minn. (AP) - Law officers in North Mankato say three would-be robbers picked the wrong time to pocket-dial 911.
Blue Earth Sheriff's Capt. Rich Murry says a dispatcher took the call early Thursday morning and heard two voices on the other end.
Murry says what she could hear of their conversation suggested the men were involved in a theft or burglary.
Murry says officers were able to use the 34-minute call to figure out where the men were and arrested them and a third suspect.
He says one of the last things heard on the unintentional 911 call was "I think I see the police" followed by sounds of running.
Murry says officers found that a supply business that had been ransacked, with cash and other items taken.
