After several minutes, the conversation eventually turned to a different topic.  The new topic was a little less amusing but VERY interesting to the dispatcher.  The new topic was on the crime that the two were in the process of committing.  Yes, another brainiac pocket dialed 911 on his cell phone.  Unfortunately for the young men, the call was all the police needed to hone in on them and capture them.  Both men were arrested and are being charged with burglary, conspiracy and possession of stolen property.  We aren’t sure if the defendants were released on a bail bond, but we do know that they might want to take advantage of their cell phones key lock function in the future.  Read the original story below:
