Anne Arundel County police are investigating a 911 operator who allegedly fell asleep while taking an emergency call.

Patricia Berg called 911 in the early morning hours of July 29 when she heard someone trying to break into her Glen Burnie townhouse.

Berg complained to a supervisor that the operator could be heard audibly snoring on the 911 tape, and now police are looking into the incident. The operator, who is on a permanent midnight shift, has been an employee since 1993.

Police are currently reviewing procedures, work history and training of the operator and no disciplinary action has been taken.

Police spokesman Lieutenant Joseph Jordan said they'll continue to talk to the operator to find out why he fell asleep and whether there's a medical reason.
