If you’re gonna break into a car don’t butt dial 911 while committing your crime. This public service announcement is brought to you by Fresno, California stoners Nathan Teklemariam and Carson Rinehart.
Harold Nathan and Kumar Carson were out driving around in their neighborhood when they got the bright idea to commit a burglary. The two 20-year-olds could be heard discussing their crime and just how bad they were wanting to get high as during the entire ordeal they were unknowingly on the horn with an attentive 911 dispatcher.
Here’s the local news report from CBS47:
And here are some of the lowlights from the poor man’s version of Cheech and Chong…

Suspect: “I’m Nathan.”
Suspect: “I just want to smoke weed so bad right now.”
Suspect: “Get the bolt and give me the hammer just in case.”
(Noise on the other end as the pair smashes a window in the car, and finds prescription drugs.)
Suspect: “They’re Norcos, yeee-ahh!”
(Harold and Kumar getting pulled over after the 911 dispatcher pieced together their whereabouts from their accidental call…)
Suspect: “Wow what did I do?”
Suspect: “Good evening, what did I do?”
Officer: “Anything in your vehicle that shouldn’t be in your vehicle?”
Suspect: “Not at all, I’m just driving my friend home.”
