Cops in Florida had to make a special house call after a man repeatedly called the emergency 911 line to report that his roommate stole his weed.
According to a tweet from the Pasco County Sheriff's Office, a deputy was dispatched to the man's house to let him know that his calls weren't going to get police to investigate the crime.
"All right, so, I just received a call. Guy's calling in saying his roommate stole his weed, $20, worth, and he's upset," Deputy Zalva said in a video posted by the Pasco County Sheriff's Department. Zalva says the man kept calling 911 trying to get someone to respond to the call, but, instead, Zalva was dispatched to make contact with the suspect to tell him to stop calling the emergency line to report his missing weed.
In a follow-up tweet, Deputy Zalva says the man started to 'freak out' a bit after Zalva contacted the insistent 911 caller.
"Going back to the guy calling in to report his drugs stolen, I called to let him know not to call the sheriff's office and report his drugs. He started to freak out a little bit on the phone and then hung up on me shortly after, so..." Zalva says with a grin.
While recreational marijuana use is still illegal in the state of Florida, a spokesperson for the sheriff's department says, no charges were filed against the caller.
