Burglar’s Traitor Phone Butt-Dials Cops Article

A burglar’s phone played traitor when it accidentally called the police to his crime scene.

Douglas Wolaver, 40, had broken into a house in Sidney, Ohio when he butt-dialed 911.

Police who were dispatched to scope the house out found a window that was forcibly opened and determined that there was a burglary in progress.

The burglar hid in the bathroom and remained undetected until his phone’s low- battery alert beeped and lead the police to his hiding spot.

He was arrested and charged for breaking and entering. He was released on bond until trial.
