Police Pinch Pocket-Dialing Prowler

SIDNEY, Ohio (February 8, 2013)--A pocket-dialing prowler in Ohio was arrested after his cell phone turned informant twice, police said.

Investigators said an emergency operator traced an accidental 911 call Tuesday night to a home in Sidney, Ohio, about 60 miles northwest of Columbus.

Shelby County sheriff's deputies dispatched to check on the house found a window that had been forced open and arrested Douglas Wolaver, of Piqua, inside the home.

The sheriff's office said Wolaver was found in a bathroom after his phone's low-battery alert led deputies to his hiding place.

Wolaver was charged with breaking and entering.
