A Bath Township, Ohio man was arrested after he called 911 requesting a police dog and reporting that heroin was stolen from him.

The call, released to WEWS-TV this week, is one of the strangest calls that Police Chief Mike McNeely has heard in 41 years in law enforcement.

According to police, it was in January when 20-year-old Joseph Murphy dialed 911 and said he needed a police dog.

"You need a police dog?" the operator asked.




"What's going on there?"

Murphy replied, "She stole heroin from me."

On the video recorded on police body cameras, Murphy can be heard explaining that a woman stole money from him.

But the officers wanted to know about the heroin that he mentioned on the emergency call.

"What's this about the heroin because we were told she took your heroin?" an officer asked.

Murphy responded, "I believe she (inaudible), she won't admit to me."

A short time later, Murphy pulled a "brown waxy substance" from his pants.

The substance was seized and Murphy was taken to the police department, he was later released.

A felony drug possession charge is expected after test results on the substance are returned.
