MANKATO, Minn. (AP) — Authorities in Minnesota say three would-be burglars picked the wrong time to pocket-dial 911.

Blue Earth Sheriff's Capt. Rich Murry says a dispatcher took the call early Thursday morning and heard two voices on the other end. Murry says what she could hear of the conversation suggested the men were involved in a theft or burglary.

Murry says officers were able to use the 34-minute call to figure out where the men were. They and arrested them and a third suspect. He says one of the last things heard on the unintentional 911 call was, "I think I see the police," followed by sounds of running.

KTOE-AM reports Murry says officers found that a Mankato supply business had been ransacked, with cash and other items taken.
