More...GAINESVILLE, Fla. -- When you dial 911, there's certain things you have to do to make sure you get the help you need.
First, know your home address, and second, don't wait 45 minutes to dial 911.
Von Powell, 22, who lives near Gainesville, had a hard time doing both of those things after he said he was the victim of a home robbery.
The man also told police that one of the things stolen was his "personal stash" of marijuana.
When you're committing a crime and you're also the victim of a crime, it makes it difficult to call police.
"He let the responding deputies know that he was sitting on the couch drinking a beer, watching a movie and smoking a blunt," a deputy said.
