A man in Seattle, Wash., is in jail after pocket-dialing 911 four different times while he allegedly stole cars.

Wesley Strom admitted to accidently calling 911 while committing the crimes. He and a few other people can be heard talking about stealing cars.

After several weeks and several accidental calls, officers caught up with Strom.

Once police arrested Strom, he admitted that he had been in a number of stolen cars, and that his cell phone sometimes dialed 911 for no apparent reason.
