Officers from Thames Valley Police in Bucks., said the caller dialled 999 saying: “Hi, people are trying to steal my weed off me”.
A spokesperson for police’s Facebook page added: “This isn’t a call that we should be getting to our 101 or 999 phone lines, particularly when reporting the theft of your drugs!”
The force awarded the phone in “call of the week” and added the hashtag #everyvillagehasone.
Dozens replied on Facebook describing the caller as a “village idiot”.
Mandy Hall wrote: “Goes to show what drugs do to the brain.”
One person wrote: “You can’t fix stupid”.
