Police: Couple High On Bath Salts Report Imaginary Men
TYRONE, Pa. (AP) – Police say a central Pennsylvania couple who repeatedly called 911 to report imaginary prowlers – including mustachioed men with silly faces – were under the influence of bath salts and endangering their two small children as a result.
Online court records don’t list attorneys for 32-year-old Melissa Zimmerman and 28-year-old Branden William who face a March 5 preliminary hearing on drug, false alarm and child endangerment charges.
The Altoona Mirror reports the couple called 911 three times in about three hours starting at 3:12 a.m. Feb. 7 to report prowlers that police couldn’t see, even when the couple pointed to them on a porch and on surveillance video.
When police returned the last time, the couple’s 6-year-old daughter was holding two knives and told police her father needed them because there were people outside.
