Repeat after me: Information is 411 not 911

Narcotics officers said [a Florida man] , picked up his phone Wednesday afternoon just before the 6 p.m. newscast to get the number for WLOX-TV to share his story about not receiving a FEMA trailer after Hurricane Katrina. But instead of 411 directory assistance, he accidentally dialed 911, then hung up. Dispatchers alerted Jackson County sheriff’s deputies to the caller’s location because they feared someone might be in need of assistance.

Deputies arrived at Coleman’s home on Mississippi 613 and no one answered the door. Officers broke in and found three people inside. Officers were given consent to search the home and found a methamphetamine lab…

Four suspects were arrested, including Coleman and his son, Christopher, 30, who also lives there. A fifth suspect remains at large.

Sgt. Curtis Spears, commander of the Narcotics Task Force of Jackson County, said the story could probably be filed under “dumb crook news.”

“It was a calamity of errors on Mr. Coleman’s part,” Spears said in disbelief. “He’s not the sharpest crayon in the box, I can tell you that.”
