Police Find Meth Lab After Man Misdials

ESCATAWPA, Miss. — A man trying to call a news station to complain about not getting a FEMA trailer after Hurricane Katrina accidentally dialed 911 and was charged with making methamphetamine after police arrived, authorities said.

Curtiss Randall Coleman was trying to get the number for Biloxi's WLOX-TV on Wednesday just before the 6 p.m. newscast, investigators said. He misdialed when trying to reach directory information and called 911 instead of 411.

When he hung up on the emergency dispatcher, the Jackson County Sheriff's Department was sent to the home to see if anyone was in need of assistance.

Deputies said that when they arrived at Coleman's house, no one answered the door. Officers broke in and allegedly found a methamphetamine lab.

Coleman, 53, and four others were arrested, including Coleman's son, Christopher, 30. A fifth suspect remains at large.

"It was a calamity of errors on Mr. Coleman's part," said Sgt. Curtis Spears, commander of the Narcotics Task Force of Jackson County.

Along with the Colemans, narcotics agents also arrested Erin Paula Oliver, 35, of Moss Point, and Leslie Renee McMahon, 27, of Ocean Springs. All four were charged with conspiracy to manufacture meth.

A person who answered the phone at the Jackson County jail declined to say whether Coleman and the others had attorneys.

You know, I bet this type of thing happens quite frequently. I know in this case it was a mistake, but I bet lots of people calling 911 when they need help completely forget that they themselves may be breaking a law. Most people calling 911 don't usually stop and think it through first, you know?

Interesting.

That is awesome. :-b

I never thought about that before though. Like Jose said, I bet mis-dialing 411 happens pretty frequently. :-?

And something most people don't realize - when you hang up on 911, it doesn't disconnect - it can only be disconnected from their end when they decide to end the call.

So they can still hear what is going on? That's crazy! Yet really cool. So if you are ever in a bind where you can't talk, dial 911 on your cell phone and then just close the phone and they could still be connected?

Not sure how your phone works, but I don't tink they would be able to hear you if ya closed your phone - it just wouldn't be disconnected - made it easy to trace in the days before call display and also keep victim connected.
