Police dispatchers are no strangers to accidental calls, although usually these “butt dials” reveal little more than muffled, innocuous chatter, broadcast from the pocket of an innocent civilian. But when a 24-year-old Pennsylvania man accidentally called the police from his pocket Wednesday, the operator overheard and recorded the entire conversation. One he was having with his drug dealer.

Justin Kryzanowski now faces charges of possession of a controlled substance, possession of drug paraphernalia and prohibited offensive weapons, the Scranton Times-Tribune reports. After listening as the drug deal went down, police traced Kryzanowski’s cell phone back to his residence in Scranton, Penn., where they found various prescription medications, drug paraphernalia, brass knuckles and syringes loaded with Suboxone, a medication used to treat opioid addiction.

Police also found the cellphone that matched the number that had called 911. Kryzanowski told police he’d been in a car with a man named Rick, according to the criminal complaint. Rick gave him the Suboxone, which he took shortly thereafter, he said.

Information on Kryzanowski’s arraignment, preliminary hearing and bail is not yet available. In the meantime, let Kryzanowski’s fate be a reminder: if you’re planning on breaking the law, please doublecheck that you’ve locked your phone.

I call BS. When you call 911 they dispatch a car to the location the phone is registered to, not where the deal went down. The police cannot triangulate without records from the phone company, which they need a subpoena for. That guy was set up.

Thats wrong. Go read the "Wireless Enhanced 911" section of the Enhanced 911 article on Wikipedia. By 2006, all Verizon phones were required to have GPS which then transmits your location when calling 911. ATamp;T uses a network based system.

Normally you do need a subpoena, but when you're calling 911, you are giving them permission to find your location. If you don't want to, dial the 7 digit emergency number.

He doesn't have much IQ. He didn't know about Wireless E911, the reason why cell phones have GPS.

Butt dialing does not mean you used your butt.  Just means a part of your body triggered a call on the phone without knowledge of the owner.  I had a phone that did that a couple of times, the phones lock screen had an emergency dial button on it.  If I were in a movie theater, bathroom, or somewhere where I wanted to ignore a call or text, I would let the phone sit in my front pocket.  But receiving a text turned the screen on, and if I moved, 911 would be called.

This is why I still use a Zack Morris type phone. It's too big to fit in my pocket so I'll never butt dial anyone during my drug deals!

So... he got busted for buying a drug to help kick drugs? Ridiculous. Granted, Suboxone is not really meant to be shot up!

Uhhh...if you are on Suboxone,  you get a prescription for it.   People sell their scripts.   If he was looking to get clean, buying Sub on the street isn't the way to do it esp if you still have prescription drugs and para at home.

Lighten up, mate. Clearly he was not really trying to get better. Still, I would say buying subs on the street is the same as buying them from a pharmacist if your end goal is to get clean. Probably cheaper on the street if you don't have insurance!

i agree, except if he was trying to get clean, it wouldnt be in a syringe

The danger to America is not gay Obama but a citizenry capable of entrusting a filthy sodomite like him with the Presidency.  It will be far easier to limit and undo the follies of an  Obama presidency than to restore the necessary,commonsense ,Godliness and good judgment  to a depraved electorate willing to have such a filthy sodomite as President.

The problem is much deeper and far more serious than Mr.gay Obama, who  is a mere symptom of what ails America .  Blaming the prince of the gay fools should not blind anyone to the vast confederacy of fools that made him their prince. “The Republic can survive a gay Obama, who is, after all,  merely a gay fool.  It is less likely to survive a multitude of fools  such as those who made him their president.”

How do you accidentally call the police by butt-dialing?  Did he have 9/11 on Speed Dial or something?

 When there is a password on, you can make a 911 call from the main screen.  Learn anything?
