A suspected drug dealer called police while allegedly making a deal but he didn't realize he was doing it. Officers say the man accidentally dialed 911 on his cell phone allowing dispatchers to listen in.
It's all too common for emergency dispatchers, a caller inadvertently dials 911. It happened again Monday shortly after midnight but Clackamas County dispatchers quickly realized this wasn't your average "butt dial."
"Okay, cause I got 40 on me, so... The only issue is seeing the product before I purchase."
The call sounded like a drug deal was going down.
"Yeah, I definitely need a 40. And please let it be good, I'm so tired of getting ripped off."
GPS from the phone indicated the call was coming from a back alley in Mollalla. That's where the dispatcher sent police.
"This I will say is a first, and it got a chuckle around the department cause they don't make it that easy for us usually," said Officer Aaron Christopherson with the Molalla Police Department.
When officers arrived, they found a man and a woman sitting in a car. The two suspects denied having a working cell phone so the officer spoke loudly. You can hear him on the 911 call.
Officers say they recovered methamphetamine. Raleigh Reynolds, 25, was taken into custody and is facing multiple felony drug charges. The woman in the car received a citation.
"They turned themselves in," laughed Officer Christopherson.
