A Pennsylvania man allegedly meeting with a drug seller accidentally dialled 911 on his cell and inadvertly summoned the police, according to the police.
Just say no.
Justin Kryzanowski, 24, of Scranton, Pa., was allegedly in a car meeting with his drug dealer, "Rick," when his not-so-smart phone dialed 911 on Wednesday, allowing dispatchers to overhear the entire conversation. Authorities later busted into Kryzanowski’s home and say they found loaded syringes, pills, drug paraphernalia and brass knuckles, an incident report cited by the Scanton Times-Tribune said.
After hearing enough to identify a drug deal was likely going down, Lackawanna County Communications Center emergency operators notified Scranton Police that a phone had called out from the middle of a suspected drug deal, reported the paper.
Cops pursued Kryzanowski to his residence by following his cell phone's signal.
Kryzanowski has been charged with possession of a controlled substance and has been cooling his heels in Lackawanna County Prison on a $5,000 bond since being booked Wednesday, according to a Lackawanna County Prison spokesperson.
Kryzanowski has a preliminary hearing set for Aug. 15.
