Stupid Criminal: Burglary suspect butt-dials police

Posted: Updated:

Smartphones can prove helpful sometimes, but other times not so much.

A pair of burglary suspects in Oklahoma found themselves being hunted by police after one man accidentally butt-dialed 911 while committing their crime.

Last week, 23-year-old Payton Seth Brewer and an accomplice allegedly broke into a home and took money, jewelry and a gun outside Pittsburg.

Police dispatchers heard the men discuss the incident over the phone. They traced the call and were able to catch Brewer when he tried to sell the jewelry at a pawn shop.

Brewer faces a charge of second-degree burglary. Police are still searching for his accomplice.
