A hilarious 911 tape released by police in Rexburg, Idaho details a pair of paranoid drug dealers who want to surrender because they think undercover narcotic cops are tailing them.
"They thought they was being followed," Rexburg Police Capt. Randy Lewis told INSIDE EDITION. "Every time a car would go by, they would get out and throw up their hands. But no one stopped. Then they got irritated."
And called 911.
"Hi, uh, we’re the two dumb asses that got caught trying to bring some stuff through your border and all your cops are just driving around us like a bunch of jack wagons," says Leland Ayala-Doliente, 22, who was traveling in a car with Holland Sward, 23 and 20-plus pounds of marijuana, headed for Montana.
The dealers had more than 20 pounds of neatly packaged pot:
"I’d just like for you guys to end it. If you could help me out with that, we would like to just get on with it," he added.
The stunned dispatcher replied: "You got caught doing what?"
The man details how the pair has drugs and a dog, and would just like to give themselves up.
Ayala-Doliente: "And, yeah. A bunch of your cops driving around in a bunch of civilian cars not wanting to pick us up. I don’t know what’s the deal. I was just wondering if you could help us out and just end it.
Dispatcher: "Ok… um…."
"The dispatcher handled himself real well," Lewis said, cracking up. "He was like, 'Are you kidding me?' We get prank calls all the time. But this is just so fricking funny."
As the 911 conversation goes on, the dispatcher chuckles, and sounds like he's trying to keep himself from laughing out loud.
Dispatcher: "OK ... alright. Is it just you or is there anybody else with you?"
Ayala-Doliente: "It’s me and my buddy that I brought with me and then we have a dog that we were gonna bring back to its owner but ..."
Dispatcher: "Oh, OK."
Ayala-Doliente: "She’s a really nice dog. She’s not mean. She’s a pitbull."
Dispatcher: "Oh, cool."
The caller asks if the cops could also bring some food for the pup.
The dispatcher asks if the dynamic duo has any weapons.
Ayala-Doliente: "Nope, we don’t have any of that stuff with us. Just a bunch of snacks and stuff."
Lewis said he was one of two officers dispatched to the scene last January. "They were just as sociable as they could be. They was real cooperative fellas."
The marijuana was sitting outside their car, neatly bundled in a dog carrier. "They said, 'There's the goods,''' Lewis recollected and burst into laughter.
"I don't know if they were hallucinating or what," he said.
Were the men tested for drugs?
That made Lewis laugh harder.
"No, we didn't test them," he said between chortles. "We had all the evidence we needed."
The men were convicted of drug trafficking and are currently incarcerated at a state rehabilitation facility, Lewis said.
Lewis said he didn't know how long the men will be there. "After their time is up, they'll be brought back down here for a parole hearing," he said.
