Burglary foiled when suspect pocket-dials 911, police say

Email

MAPLEWOOD, Minn. -- A police dispatcher thwarted a burglary attempt at a Maplewood business when a suspect inadvertently called 911 and left the line open as he and an alleged accomplice discussed the crime, police say.

The two men allegedly on the other end of the ill-fated call, Todd J. Weiss and Justin G. Evans, were arrested at the scene. Both face third-degree felony burglary charges.

Weiss, 32, is from Minnetonka. Evans, 38, is from Savage.
