    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.

    A Huntington Beach man has set a record for most consecutive visits to Disneyland. Jeff Reitz, 44, has visited the park 2,000 times in a row. Reitz started visiting the park every day when he was unemployed and wanted to keep his spirits up. Employed at the VA now, Reitz continues to visit every day after work because it helps him to decompress after a long day. His favorite ride is the Matterhorn Bobsleds, which he first rode with his mom when he was 2 years old.

    McNeely says the man is expected to face a drug charge after he pulled a brown, waxy substance from his pants while being interviewed by police.

    The substance was seized and sent to a lab for testing. The caller was released pending the test results.
