This is a little too young to develop a telephone habit -- or to become a snitch, for that matter.

An 11-month-old boy in White Rock, B.C. accidentally dialled 911 and brought police to dad's marijuana grow operation.

Mounties say a 911 call came in from a residence Friday morning, but whoever was on the other end of the line hung up.

Officers arrived at the home and White Rock R-C-M-P Constable Janelle Canning says the 29-year-old man inside, startled by the sudden sight of police, insisted he hadn't made the call.

That's when police spotted the baby playing with a cordless phone.

Canning says the baby was pressing all the buttons, so evidently he was the one who called 911.

Officers then began inspecting the home and discovered a 500-plant marijuana grow operation.

The infant's dad will appear in court in early April on charges of production of a controlled substance and mischief.
