Two people are in custody in Madison County, Kentucky after a pocket dial last Friday led police to a drug transaction, WLEX-TV reported.

According to the station, dispatchers heard two men discussing a drug transaction. The police dispatcher pinged the location of the phone to a Circle K gas station.

Police were then able to arrest the two men.  Greg Collins was arrested on charges of possession of meth and possession of heroin. Justin Cruse was arrested for carrying a concealed weapon and possession of a handgun by a convicted felon.
