A man staying in Room 118 of the La Quinta Inn & Suites in Wenatchee, Washington meant to call room 119, but instead dialed 911. His digit transposition led to the arrest of two people.
Sgt. John Kruse, a Wenatchee Police Department spokesman, said when officers arrived to find out if there was a problem, the man explained the misdialing. Officers asked for the name of the person he was calling in Room 119. They did a background check on the name of the man in Room 119 and determined there was a warrant out for his arrest.
Officers then went to Room 119, arrested the man and discovered a half ounce of heroin and other drugs in the room.
The man was arrested on suspicion of three counts of unlawful possession of a controlled substance and two counts of unlawful possession of a controlled substance with intent to sell.
