CLACKAMAS COUNTY, Ore.—A suspected drug dealer called Oregon police but did not realize he was doing it.

Officers say the man accidentally dialed 911 on his cell phone, which allowed dispatchers to listen in.

Clackamas County dispatchers quickly realized this was not the usual phone call.

Authorities heard the man allegedly making a drug deal on the phone.

GPS from the phone indicated the call was coming from a back alley.

Officer Aaron, Christopherson, Molalla police, said, “This, I will say, is a first and got a chuckle around the department because they don’t make it that easy for us usually.”

When police arrived, they found a man and a woman sitting in a car.

The two suspects denied having a working cell phone.

The officers spoke loudly and could hear himself on the 911 call.

Authorities found methamphetamine in the car and arrested 25-year-old Raleigh Reynolds.
