Maplewood Burglars Pocket-Dial 911 10 Apr 14

Two men were arrested during a burglary in Maplewood recently after one of them accidentally “Pocket-Dialed” 911 and left the line open as the pair discussed the crime. The 911 dispatcher reportedly got a call and hang-up, then another call that stayed open, and then overheard a conversation about where police were. The calls were made using the phone’s emergency-call feature, and the dispatcher saw the location was a car-repair shop. Officers arrived to see two men leaving the building wearing dark clothing. One carried a television, the other a box. The men dropped the objects and ran, but were caught by police dogs. Thirty-two-year-old Todd Weiss of Minnetonka and 38-year-old Justin Evans of Savage are charged with third-degree burglary.
