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.
