Police help accused drug dealer unlock car with drugs inside

MAYFIELD HEIGHTS, Ohio -- Police arrested a suspected drug dealer in Ohio after the man called 911 for help after locking his keys in his car, according to WJW.

Mayfield Heights officers were happy to help, but once they got the door to the car open, they realized 39-year-old Keith Deloach might not just be a stranded driver.

Officers noticed a strong odor of marijuana when they unlocked the car and opened the door.

At first, Deloach tried to pass it off as a cigar he'd been smoking, but eventually admitted he had two bags of marijuana hidden in a coffee cup in the backseat, police said.

A search of the car also turned up a marijuana grinder, a scale and three boxes of sandwich bags labeled with the brand name "Good Sense."

Officers had a bit of a hard time trying to understand why Deloach would call them for help, given what he had in his car.

"I can't help but laugh," said one officer in the video, asking Deloach, "Did you seriously call the police?"

He is facing charges of drug trafficking and possession of drugs and drug paraphernalia. Since the incident happened close to several children in a shopping plaze, Deloach might face new charges.
