Man Calls 911 Requesting A Police Dog To Help Find His Stolen Heroin

An Ohio man called 911 requesting a police dog to help track down heroin he claimed was stolen from him.

Joseph Murphy, 20, asked the dispatcher for a police dog in January and later pulled a ‘brown waxy substance’ from his pockets when responding police officers pressed him about the drug.

Bath Police Chief Mike McNeely says it’s among the most bizarre things he’s heard in four decades of policing, News5 reported.

In the audio clip released this week, Murphy requested a police dog and said, ‘She stole heroin from me,’ when the dispatcher asked what was going on.

Body cameras on the responding police officers showed Murphy trying to explain that a woman stole money from him.

But when the police officers asked about the heroin he mentioned in the 911 call, Murphy mumbled inexplicably.

He later pulled out a ‘brown waxy substance’, which was seized and sent to a lab for testing, police said.

McNeely says Murphy, who was released pending the test results, is expected to face a drug charge.

The 20-year-old was later arrested for operating a vehicle impaired after he crashed a Mercedes.  His blood alcohol level was .121, police said – well over the limit of .08.

Murphy was also accused of urinating on a Florida trooper’s leg at the Walt Disney World Resort on January 2 after he was arrested for disorderly intoxication.
