A man called 999 after a bouncer confiscated his drugs and refused him entry to a Yorkshire nightclub.
The force’s contact management centre released the information on their Twitter page to advise people not to call the emergency line unless absolutely necessary.
“He thinks it is illegal to keep his drugs from him.
“Yes, he did ring 999, yes he thinks we are on route to retrieve his drugs. #Not999”
Other time-wasting calls West Yorkshire Police received over the weekend included someone ringing for an electrician, someone concerned about a water leak and someone who had had their shopping delivered a day early.
The force also revealed it had received 999 calls from children making hoax calls.
