FRESNO, Calif. (AP) - Two suspects arrested for breaking into a car in Central California accidentally called 911 on a cell phone, which led police to them.

KXTV in Sacramento reports (http://on.news10.net/14xiYik ) a dispatcher was able to hear a rambling 35-minute conversation between the men as they discussed buying drugs and what implements to use to break into vehicles in Fresno.

The dispatcher listened in as the suspects smashed a car's window and found prescription drugs.

The men drove off, but the dispatcher picked up clues about where they were headed. A police officer pulled them over and arrested the two 20-year-olds.

At the end of the call the men learned how they were caught. One of them can be heard asking, "We really called 911?"
