Man calls 911 seeking ‘police assistance’ after seeing bugs: OPP

Ontario Provincial Police are reminding people that finding bugs in your home is not a valid reason to call 911.

Officers with the Norfolk County detachment issued the reminder after a man called for police assistance on Monday.

They say he called at about 3:50 a.m. because he found bugs inside his house.

Police say the man told the dispatcher he wanted police assistance.

OPP say that when people call 911 for non-emergencies, it could mean that officers are slower to respond to more serious calls.

It is still unclear if the caller wanted the police to shoot or arrest the bugs for trespassing.
