WHITE ROCK, British Columbia, Jan. 21 (UPI) -- An 11-month-old Canadian boy playing with a cell phone made a 911 emergency call in British Columbia that resulted in his father's arrest on drug charges.
The incident occurred Friday morning in the town of White Rock, several miles north of the U.S. border, The Province newspaper in Vancouver reported Wednesday.
The Royal Canadian Mounted Police received an emergency call, but the line went dead. The RCMP automatically responds to hang-up calls, and when officers arrived at the home, they found a marijuana farm of 500 plants, the report said.
The unidentified 29-year-old father was arrested, and the child was placed in the custody of the provincial Ministry of Children and Family Development, which later located the mother, police said. The child's mother did not live at the residence.
The man will appear in court to face drug and mischief charges in April, police said.
