HELENA, Mont. — Sanitation workers pumping out a vault toilet at a Montana park found and returned a woman’s cellphone that had fallen down the drain.
It’s a dirty job, but Tracy Kau, Cody Evert and Tanner Stevenson do it.
They used some grabbers to remove it. They sanitized it, let it dry, plugged it in and somehow it turned on. They went to the phone carrier but since they were not the owner, the store would not access phone information for them.
“I called Apple, basically got the same runaround with them,” Evert told KRTV. “I even went through the process of giving them a serial number and everything off the phone. At the end of the conversation, they said ‘Nope, can’t contact the owner,’ and to take it to the police department or recycle it.”
They were able to swap out the sim card and got the owner’s phone number and contacted her.
