  • MCALESTER, Okla. (AP) — Deputies in Pittsburg County say an alleged burglar accidentally dialed 911 from his pocket while he and an accomplice were discussing what to steal from a home.
     
    Officials said Monday that dispatchers listened in while the burglars talked about which pieces of jewelry to take from the house they'd broken into.
     
    Pittsburg County Undersheriff Richard Bedford told the McAlester News-Capital the burglars had left when deputies got to the home. But Bedford says one of the men was caught trying to sell the jewelry at a local business.
     
    The man is being held without bond pending formal charges. The other suspect is still being sought.
