Elaine Caris, 64, called 911 on April 12 and told dispatchers someone stole her cookies, a Port Clinton police report said. An officer arrived at her apartment and quickly determined there was no crime, prompting him to warn Caris about misusing the 911 system.
Caris “flew into a rage” and screamed at the officer, ordering him to leave her apartment as she swatted at him. She then activated her personal security alarm, prompting another dispatcher to ask if everything was OK, the report said. Caris told the security alarm dispatcher that a man was in her apartment and she wanted him to leave.
The officer issued her a citation and left the scene.
