ALLIANCE, Ohio, March 6 (UPI) -- Police in Ohio said they arrested a man who called 911 to accuse his wife of stealing his stash of cocaine.

Stark County Jail records show Robert Daniel Collins, 39, of Alliance, called 911 Wednesday night and accused his wife of theft.


"[He] called 911 because he claimed that his wife stole his cocaine," jail records state.

Police arrived and found Collins, who was wanted on an active warrant for failing to pay fines on a previous case, in possession of a glass pipe he identified as being for smoking marijuana.

Collins was taken to the Stark County Jail on misdemeanor charges of possession of drug paraphernalia and misuse of 911. He could face up to 60 days in jail and $500 in fines if convicted on the charges.

The suspect was released on his own recognizance and is scheduled to be arraigned Friday.

The Alliance Municipal Court docket shows Collins failed to pay a $25 fine and $589 in costs from a previous speeding and driving under suspension case.

Police did not say whether the allegedly stolen cocaine was recovered.
