A woman calls the wrong number looking for drugs; West Virginia police look for a naked alleged car thief; and a motel guest is arrested for using too much Vaseline. Once again, it's time for unusual crimes and misdemeanors — even the naked, slippery kind — in this week's Crime Blotter.
A Really Wrong Number
C A N T O N, Ohio — It was probably the worst wrong number ever for one Ohio woman.
Canton police say Amy Logue accidentally called authorities as she tried to buy crack.
According to officials, the 27-year-old called three times asking for drugs, and never realized she was talking to a officer.
One call went as follows:
Caller: "Do you have any?"
Police Dispatcher: "Have what?"
Dispatcher: "Uh, probably."
Caller: "Is it good?"
Police said they then set up a meeting with Logue and arrested her when she showed up. She now faces drug felony charges. — ABCNEWS Affliate WPVI in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.
APB on Naked Car Thief
C H A R L E S T O N, W. Va — Police in West Virginia are looking for a man who alleged stole a car while in his birthday suit.
Officials say Richard Maddox, 22, was last seen May 11 running naked down a West Virginia road after allegedly stealing a car belonging to his girlfriend's mother and crashing it. Maddox, police said, took the car after his girlfriend had asked him to leave her Charleston home and retrieve her belongings from the vehicle.
After the car was reported stolen, a deputy found the car wrecked in nearby Sissonville and saw Maddox — sans clothes. Maddox fled, and police do not know why he was naked. But they want to arrest him for grand larceny.
Coated, Slippery … and Booked
B I N G H A M T O N, NY — A Virginia man was arrested after police allegedly found him covered head to toe in Vaseline.
The 44-year-old man's unique brand of lubrication would not be illegal if he was not accused of using the Vaseline to damage a hotel room. Police told ABCNEWS affiliate WPVI in Philadelphia, Pa., that the man — whose name was not released — coated almost his entire Motel 6 room with petroleum jelly. The cleaning crew found Vaseline on the television set, the mattress, furniture and carpeting and motel officials say the damage is more than $1,000.
The well-lubricated suspect has been charged with felony criminal mischief.
