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

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.
