An accidental butt-dial landed a pair of Oklahoma burglary suspects in jail.

The men broke into a home in McAlester last week, grabbing money, jewelry and a gun before hitting the road, sheriff's officials told Tulsa TV station KJRH.

But their plans hit a snag when 23-year-old Payton Seth Brewer accidentally butt-dialed 911.

As shocked Pittsburg County dispatchers listened in, the pair talked about their crime and what they had stolen, according to Tulsa TV station KOTV.

"We're good, I got enough jewelry, we're good," one man said, according to KOTV.

Dispatchers notified deputies, who traced the call and arrested Brewer as he was trying to sell the jewelry at a pawn shop.

His accomplice ran from the scene and remained on the loose.

    Wisconsin Department of Transportation officials showed off a better way to build and repair small bridges Thursday.

    The process involves building retaining walls on each side of the waterway. After filling in the area with gravel, precast tops are put in place. A normal bridge project would take 2 or 3 months, but the new process can cut that time down dramatically.
