A prank or scam the police don't tell you they are coming round to arrest you

This was a hoax call. It was made by someone of very little education and probably not very bright. The language used should have given you a clue about that.
Police do not "watch" phones. They may "tap" or intercept calls, but they do NOT have someone sitting outside your window watching your telephone. They would also not call you to give advance notice of arrest.
If it happens again then dial 1471 and get the number of the caller. Report this to the police and ask for action under the Protection from Harassment Act.
Unless, of course, you have a guilty conscience and are genuinely at risk of arrest and someone is playing on your fears.

How can they watch your phone. Anyone over the age of 10 would realise that is a hoax.
You have strange friends.

Do you think if they were watching your phone, and going to arrest you that they would give you warning. No , you would already be in cuffs.

Yeah that's likely a prank call. The cops DON'T let you know they are coming for you. It makes it too easy for you to run.

Telemarketers. Probably someone attempting to cash in on the NSA abusing our rights.

Did you? Maybe you want to ask a question about this alleged incident. If so then do feel free to tell us what the question is.
