SCRANTON, Pa. (AP) — Police say a northeastern Pennsylvania man accidentally dialed 911 during a drug deal, leading to the entire conversation being recorded and his subsequent arrest.

Scranton police say they arrested 24-year-old Justin Kryzanowski on Wednesday after being contacted by dispatchers who told them a conversation about narcotics could be heard over an open line.

Investigators say they tracked down Kryzanowski at his home and found syringes filled with the opioid dependence medication Suboxone and various prescription drugs. The Times-Tribune of Scranton (http://bit.ly/MAirSw ) reports officers also found Kryzanowski's cellphone, which matched the one that called 911.

Kryzanowski's arraignment information wasn't immediately available.
