Woman Calls Police Stolen Snowman - She used actual coins for the eyes and said it was gone.

A woman in England calls police over a stolen snowman. The woman claimed her snowman was stolen, which is one of the weirdest calls to police. The alledged theft took place right in her front yard.

Police complained after the woman from Chatham dialed 999 to report snowman. The woman claimed that the missing figure was a genuine theft because of the coins she had used for eyes. "There's been a theft from outside my house. I haven't been out to check on him for five hours but I went outside for a fag and he's gone," she told the emergency operator in London.

"My snowman. I thought that with it being icy and there not being anybody about, he'd be safe... a snowman made of snow, I made him myself." she said. "It ain't a nice road but at the end of the day, you don't expect someone to nick your snowman, you know what I mean?" However, police are still angry about the call.

"This call could have cost someone's life if there was a genuine emergency and they couldn't get through. It was completely irresponsible - we have spoken to her and advised her what is a 999 call, and this is clearly not," Chief inspector Simon Black said in a statement. "We do have powers to prosecute people for misusing the 999 system, but in this case the woman genuinely thought this was a theft that she should report it because she'd used pound coins for the eyes and teaspoons for the arms."
