The Importance of Keyguard

From WSJ Evening Wrap:
Sheriff's deputies in Hawkins County, Tenn., said they foiled a burglary after the alleged burglars accidentally discussed their plans in a 911 call. One of the accused men had a cell phone with raised numbers in his pocket while he talked with his alleged accomplice about stealing a refrigerator from a mobile-home dealership, the deputies said. The phone automatically dials "911" when the number 9 is pressed, and as luck would have it, that's exactly what happened while the men were planning the crime, deputies said. The deputies at first thought the call was an April Fools' prank, but they drove to the mobile-home dealership just in case. The alleged burglars walked out of the dealership with the refrigerator into the waiting arms of the Hawkins County Sheriff's Department, deputies said. The deputies said they planned to listen to the 911 call again to see if other accomplices were identified.
