BATH TOWNSHIP, Ohio — This is your brain on drugs.
A drug-addled dope made life easy for cops in Ohio when he called 911 and asked them to send a police dog to help him find some heroin he believed had been stolen from him.
“Dispatchers take all type of calls. This is one of the most bizarre that I’ve heard,” Bath Township Police Chief Mike McNeely told WEWS-TV.
The January call began harmlessly enough, but quickly took an odd turn when a distraught-sounding Joseph Murphy began asking for a police dog.
“You need a police dog?” the operator asked. “What’s going on there?”
“She stole heroin from me,” Murphy replied.
The 20-year-old seemed clueless about why this was a problem even after cops showed up and began quizzing him about the dope.
Police body camera footage shows Murphy explaining that a woman stole money from him, but when officers press him about the drugs he accused the woman of stealing on the 911 call, Murphy responded: “I believe she did, but she won’t admit to me.”
Cops say Murphy pulled a “brown waxy substance” from his pants and he was arrested.
Murphy made headlines earlier this year when he allegedly urinated on a police officer in Florida while being arrested for causing a disturbance at Disney World.
