Suspect’s Cell Phone Dials 911 During Burglary

NEW CASTLE (KDKA) — Three people are facing charges – all because a thief’s cell phone dialed 911 during a burglary.

Police say the men allegedly broke into a garage in the 500-block of Harber Street in New Castle.

According to investigators, when 911 got the call, they heard male voices and a lot of noise and figured a burglary was in progress.

Dispatchers pinged the call, got the address and sent a police officer to the scene. When police got there, the officer saw three males in a truck filled with metal and pulled them over on Bell Avenue.

The men were then arrested.

Nikia Goode, Vernon Bundy and Johnny Taylor are facing charges of criminal conspiracy, burglary, criminal trespass, receiving stolen property and marijuana possession.

Goode also faces a driving violation charge.
