Cops: Pocket dial, low battery led to Ohio burglar

SIDNEY, Ohio (AP) - Authorities in Ohio say a pocket-dialing prowler got himself arrested after his cellphone turned informant. Twice.

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

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

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

Wolaver is charged with breaking and entering. A phone listing for him was disconnected.
