Police: 911 operator heard caller making drug deal
CLEVELAND (AP) -- Police in Cleveland say a man called 911 because he felt he was in danger -- then asked the dispatcher to hold on while he made a drug deal.
Police Lt. Thomas Stacho said Tuesday that Alejandro Melendez was arrested after the call and was charged with possessing cocaine.
Police said Melendez called 911 late Saturday and reported that two men with guns were watching him.
Police records show he hung up, so the dispatcher called back.
