Salem, Ore (SafeCITY) - Calvin Hoover, a 21-year-old Oregon man was arrested after he called 911 to report that someone had stolen his marijuana.

According to the Marion County Sheriff's Office, deputies were dispatched to a bar after Hoover called to report someone had broken into his vehicle while he was inside the Freeloader Tavern.

Hoover told the dispatchers that a thief broke into his truck and stole $400 in cash, a jacket and about 3/4 ounce of marijuana.

Deputies arrived at the bar about 1 a.m. but were unable to locate Hoover. After about a half hour, Hoover called back, angry that deputies were taking so long to arrive.

Investigators say the dispatcher was having trouble hearing Hoover during the call because he had stopped several times to vomit.

Deputies eventually located Hoover about 100 feet from his truck. He told deputies that he was looking for the person who had stolen his "weed".

Deputies took the man's theft report and then promptly arrested him, discovering he was drunk and in possession of marijuana.

Hoover was booked into the Marion County Jail on charges of possession of a controlled substance and DUI.
