Accidental 911 Call Leads To Meth Bust
Three Florida residents are in custody after authorities say they accidentally dialed 911 while whipping up meth in a meth lab.
Officials said an accidental 911 call in Deltona led Volusia County Sheriff’s deputies to a meth house over the weekend.
Dispatchers fielded a phone call about 12:31 a.m. Saturday with the standard greeting: “911, where’s your emergency?” While no one on the other end responded, the call-taker could hear voices in the background.
Authorities said what those voices were saying immediately piqued the dispatcher’s interest, as she quickly realized that she was overhearing a discussion about drugs.
The dispatcher left the phone line open for nearly 28 minutes as she continued to listen in on the conversation and relay what she was hearing to responding deputies.
At one point, the dispatcher noted that she could hear a bubbling sound as if something was cooking.
Using cellphone locator data, deputies were dispatched to a home on Roland Drive where they traced the sound of the voices to a shed in the backyard.
When deputies peered through an open window, they could see meth-making materials in plain view, investigators said.
Deputies said they also saw white smoke billowing out of the shed, a sign of active meth cooking.
Deputies apprehended the three occupants and removed them from the shed for safety reasons while the Sheriff’s Office’s Clandestine Laboratory Response Team was dispatched to the scene to dismantle the meth lab.
These guys are about as bright as Donna Goudeau…smh…
