    Police say an Ohio man called 911 to request a police dog to help track down heroin allegedly stolen from him. 

    WEWS-TV reports a 20-year-old man in Bath Township, near Akron, made the call in January. The recording was released this week.

    When the call operator asks why the caller needs a police dog, he replies that a female stole heroin from him.
