Accidental 911 call leads to arrests, drug charges

STANFORD, Ky. (AP) – An accidental call to 911 landed two people in jail after their conversation about participating in illegal drug activity was overheard by dispatchers.

Media outlets report that according to authorities, dispatchers received a call early Sunday morning. Instead of someone asking for help, the dispatchers overheard people allegedly talking about packaging and cutting narcotics.

Lincoln County sheriff’s deputy Chase Marcum responded to the location the call was made from, and found 34-year-old Hobert Riley (above, right,) and 32-year-old Holly Bailey in a car with needles, crystal meth and other drug paraphernalia. Marcum arrested both for drug possession and possession of drug paraphernalia.

Riley says he doesn’t remember calling 911.

It wasn’t immediately clear if Riley or Bailey have attorneys.
