‘Pocket Dialed’ Phone Call Leads To Drug Arrests

COLLEGE STATION, Texas (AP) — An inadvertent 911 cellphone call to Central Texas police has led to drug charges against two teenagers.

College Station police on Monday said the phone was in the pocket of one of two men at a home where marijuana allegedly was being smoked.

Sgt. Danny Junek says responding officers found no emergency but smelled marijuana at the residence. Officers obtained a search warrant and seized cocaine, marijuana and more than $4,100.

Two College Station residents were being held Monday on marijuana possession charges. Bond was set at $2,000 for 19-year-old Kyle Nelson Bading. Officials say 18-year-old David Marshal Norris, who cellphone made the errant call, also faces charges of delivery of a controlled substance. He’s held without bond.

Online jail records don’t list attorneys for them.
