Police: Stop calling drug dealer's phone so we can search it
ALLIANCE, OH - Police in Ohio say their search of a suspected drug dealer’s phone was repeatedly interrupted as they couldn’t get prospective drug purchasers to stop calling the device.
WCMH-TV reports Alliance Police arrested Steve Notman Tuesday night after they said he was captured on video selling methamphetamine.
Detectives say they’re trying to search through texts and contacts on the man’s phone, but they say that the constant stream of calls and texts to the device is “really annoying” and is thwarting their investigation efforts.
Officers took a very tongue-in-cheek step to try to solve the problem as they posted to Facebook saying, “First of all, he is all out of drug for tonight. Secondly, you don’t need to call - we will come to you soon enough.”
Police also took the time to note that Notman’s ringtone is terrible.
