(KJRH)  An Oklahoma burglar is behind bars after butt-dialing the police in the middle of a break-in.

"Never have I seen or heard of anything like this," said Pittsburg County Sheriff Joel Kerns.

Kerns, an 11-year law enforcement veteran, watched as what he calls, "one of the world's dumbest criminals," landed himself behind bars.

On Friday, Kerns says two men burglarized a home on the outskirts of McAlester.

They escaped with money, jewelry, and at least one gun. Shortly after the burglary however, the phone rang inside McAlester's 911 dispatch center.

The dispatcher transferred the call to investigators, who Kerns says listened in as the thieves described the burglary and what they stole.
