Transposing room Number 119 at a Wenatchee motel — and instead dialing 911 — resulted in the arrest of two Wenatchee residents on suspicion of drug possession early Wednesday morning.
Sgt. John Kruse, a Wenatchee Police Department spokesman, said a man staying in Room 118 of the La Quinta Inn & Suites, 1905 N. Wenatchee Ave. misdialed the number.
When officers arrived to find out if there was a problem, the man explained the misdialing. Officers asked for the name of the person he was calling in Room 119.
They did a background check on the name of the man in Room 119 and determined there was a warrant out for his arrest.
Officers then went to Room 119, arrested the man and discovered a half ounce of heroin and other drugs in the room, Kruse said.
The 29-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of three counts of unlawful possession of a controlled substance and two counts of unlawful possession of a controlled substance with intent to sell.
A 22-year-old woman in Room 119 was arrested on suspicion of two counts of unlawful possession of a controlled substance and two counts of unlawful possession of a controlled substance with intent to sell.
