"You have been under arrest for ten minutes, 'Silky' Bob. Chicago thinks you may have dropped over our ways and wires us she wants to have a chat with you."

Hey guys Emotion: smile . What does dropped over mean in the sentence above?

I think that "dropped over" means "came to visit", and "our ways" means "our way", i.e. "our direction/vicinity".

Well I think I've heard it with the same meaning but I can't understand what "came to visit" have to do with the sentence. I just can't get it. And I asked as I thought it may have some other meaning but probably it doesn't.
Anyway thanks.
SunyyWell I think I've heard it with the same meaning but I can't understand what "came to visit" have to do with the sentence. I just can't get it.
In the story, which I skimmed very rapidly, this person has travelled from the West (of America) to New York in order to meet an old friend, so "came to visit" seems to make sense to me. Is there some aspect that I'm missing?

”Chicago thinks you may have come over our station and radio stations have wired me, Jimmy on the hook and the warrant wants to talk to you.”

I think that is the answer
