Potheads nabbed after dialing 9111

Thursday, December 5th, 2002 • Filed under Uncategorized

If you and your family are in to growing a bunch of marijuana in your house, it probably isn’t the smartest move to trick your mom into dialing 911. Apparently a Canadian woman’s son tricked her into dialing 911 by telling her that dialing 9111 would indicate whether or not her phone line was being tapped.

Naturally, the woman received the 911 emergency call center, so she promptly hung up. Surrey Police were dispatched anyway, and discovered a house full of marijuana. Although four arrests were made, Canadian police were nice enought to release the hapless pot growers early enough to host a birthday party they had been planning.
