ALLIANCE, Ohio — Police say a northeast Ohio man called 9-1-1 to report that his wife stole his cocaine and was then arrested himself.
The Review newspaper in Alliance reports officers responding to the Wednesday night call discovered the man had a marijuana pipe and was wanted on a warrant for failing to pay hundreds of dollars in costs in an earlier court case.
The man, 39-year-old Robert D. Collins of Alliance, was charged with two misdemeanor counts alleging improper use of the 9-1-1 system and possession of drug paraphernalia. Alliance Municipal Court records online didn’t list an attorney for him Friday.
The Repository in nearby Canton reports Collins’ jail records didn’t indicate whether police located the reportedly stolen cocaine or his wife.
