An Ohio drug dealer and heroin junkie recently called 911 in order to ask them to help him find his drugs.
Joseph Murphy, 20, suspected that his girlfriend had stolen his drugs from him. He decided to call 911 and requested they send him a drug sniffing dog to help him locate them.
The call took place in January, but the recording was only released this week.
Conservative Tribune reports:
However, body cameras on the police revealed a different story. As police questioned Murphy about the incident, he pulled a “brown waxy substance” from his pants. It was not immediately known if this was the substance he believed his girlfriend stole from him.
Police then took Murphy to the Bath Township Police Department where he was fingerprinted and released.
The substance was sent to the Ohio Bureau of Criminal Investigation for tests. Police Chief Mike McNeely said a felony drug possession charge is expected after results are delivered.
According to McNeely, this was “one of the most bizarre” cases he has ever experienced in his 41 years on the job.
It’s a shame to see young adults like Murphy hooked on drugs, and so addicted that they believe it is a good idea to call the police to help them search for their stash.
Hopefully he can get his act together and go about living a normal, clean life.
