(Newser) – Note to burglars: Try to avoid butt-dialing 911 during your getaway. But that's apparently what three crooks did Sunday after hitting a Best Buy near Houston, ABC News reports. Officers were en route to the Sugar Land store when dispatch received a 911 call that transmitted only background noise. So officials pinged the phone and police followed, leading to a chase that authorities say hit 120mph. When suspects abandoned their truck in Houston, police say they nabbed two of them with K-9 officers and a helicopter, per Click2Houston. The third remains at large. Laptops and other electronic devices were recovered from the vehicle. (Read more butt dialing stories.)
