911 pocket-dial leads to cannabis arrest in College Station

According to the College Station Police Department, two teens have been arrested on drug charges after they pocket-dialed 911.

Police responded to the residence in the 200 block of Navarro about 4 p.m. Sunday and interviewed several people at the home.

“Officers were able to determine that there was no emergency and that one of the residents had ‘pocket dialed’ 911 while smoking marijuana at the residence,” the press release states. It went on to say that after detecting a strong odor of burnt marijuana, police obtained a search warrant based on statements made by one of the residents.
