Fresno, CA – A drug bust after a 911 “butt-dial” has landed two careless crooks in prison.
Nathan Teklemariam and Carson Rinehart were recently arrested in Fresno. They were nabbed at a drug bust after a 911 butt-dial. Essentially, one of them accidentally called 911, and the pair were recorded as they talked about scoring drugs and breaking into a car.
The 911 operator tried to get their attention, but eventually just stopped and listened in, because let’s face it… these boys were too interesting to interrupt.
Looking to pass some time:
Suspect: “I just want to smoke weed so bad right now.”
Later, coordinating a break-in:
Suspect: “Get the bolt and give me the hammer just in case.”
Suspect: “They’re Norcos, yeee-ahh!”
A bold plan:
Suspect: “We’ll go back and search in a little bit and search the whole thing. But we’ll park far away, you know?”
By this time, the 911 operator had picked up a few clues as to where these two knuckleheads were, and had dispatched a few officers to check on them.
Hilariously, the 911 operator listens as the police approach the two.
Suspect: “He’s right (expletive) behind me, dude.”
Suspect: “Oh he’s following me Dog!”
Suspect: “He’s following the (expletive) out of me Bro!
Suspect: “Wow what did I do?”
They’re pulled over, their car is searched, and they are arrested on charges of breaking into a car, possession of stolen property and conspiracy to commit a crime.
Near the tail-end of the call, the suspects finally figure out how they were caught. “The phone really called 911?” asked one of the suspects.
The cop, hopefully with a smirk on his face, replied “Yeah.”
And that’s how a drug bust after a 911 butt-dial landed two careless crooks in prison.
