Pocket dialing calls police to Oregon drug deal

MOLALLA, Ore. -- Police in Molalla say a dispatcher received a cell phone call and overheard a drug deal taking place.

A phone in a woman's pocket inadvertently dialed 911 early Tuesday and dispatchers heard a conversation with a man about drugs.

KGW-TV reported police tracked the GPS signal to a car in an alley about a block away. An officer who arrived at the scene could be heard over the phone by dispatchers.

The officer found methamphetamine and arrested a 25-year-old man on multiple drug charges. The 25-year-old woman was cited for possessing marijuana and hung up her phone.
