Call it a case of drugged dialing.
Two men attempted to page their drug dealer from a Pomona pay phone with an urgent "911" order for dope about 3 a.m. Tuesday. Instead, they got through to police dispatchers, authorities said.
"No one said criminals are smart," said Pomona Police Sgt. Michael Olivieri. "When they were interviewing afterward, they admitted they were in a hurry for dope and made an error in dialing."
The call was traced, and a patrol car sent to the scene. Officers found suspects Paul White, 38, and Ryan Ogle, 25, standing next to the pay phone and a car outside the Pack A Bag convenience store, Olivieri said.
