(Newser) – Police in Scranton got a freebie on this one: They say a man accidentally dialed 9-1-1 on his phone as he sat in a car making a drug deal, reports the Times-Tribune. Police listened in on the whole thing, traced the call, and eventually swooped in to arrest the 24-year-old buyer at his apartment. They found a slew of prescription drugs, some brass knuckles, and the cell phone that did him in.
