MOLALLA, Ore. — Police in the Oregon town of Molalla say a dispatcher received a cellphone call and overheard a drug deal taking place.

A phone in the woman's pocket inadvertently dialed 911 early Tuesday and dispatchers heard a conversation with a man about drugs.

KGW reports police tracked the GPS signal to a car in an alley about a block away.

An officer who arrived at the scene could be heard over the phone by dispatchers.

The officer found methamphetamine and arrested a 25-year-old man on multiple drug charges.

The 25-year-old woman was cited for possessing marijuana — and hung up her phone.
