AKRON, Ohio – In the “We don’t make this stuff up” category, police say an Ohio man called 911 to request a police dog to help track down heroin that he says was stolen from him, according to ABC 7.

Local WEWS-TV reported a 20-year-old man in Bath Township, near Akron, made the call in January. The recording was released this week.

The caller apparently sought a police narcotic detecting K9. When the call operator asked why the caller needed a police dog, he said a female stole heroin from him.

Bath Police Chief Mike McNeely said it’s among the most bizarre things he’s heard in four decades of policing.

McNeely further indicated the man is expected to face a drug charge after he pulled a brown, waxy substance from his pants while being interviewed by police.

The substance was seized and sent to a lab for testing. The unidentified man was released pending the test results.
