Police in Dade City, Florida say they had to ask a local man to kindly stop calling them to report that his roommate had dipped into his stash.
A Pasco County Sheriff’s Office deputy took to Twitter in an effort to get the weed-bereaved gentleman to stop calling about his stolen weed, which remains prohibited in the state for recreational consumption.
Deputy Neal Zalva stated in a video that he was forced to phone the man to request that he stop contacting emergency services.
Someone called dispatch because his weed was stolen. Deputy Zalva is making contact.
“Someone called dispatch because his weed was stolen. Deputy Zalva is making contact. #TweetAlong,” reads the post. “So I just received a call… The guy’s calling in, saying his roommate stole his weed — $20 (approx CD$27) worth,” Zalva said in the 33-second video, appearing to be stifling a laugh.
“And he’s upset, so he keeps calling 911. So I’ve got to give him a call to tell him to stop calling about his weed.” Zalva made the video for the Office’s #TweetAlong campaign, in which locals get a behind-the-scenes glimpse of a day in the life of a deputy.
