A man and woman were arrested Sunday morning after repeatedly calling 911 to report seeing people and opossums jumping out of their refrigerator and microwave at a house on Prince Street, according to investigative reports.

Deputies said Brandon Terry and Casey Fowler gave them a mailbox number that didn’t exist, but deputies were able to track down the concerned couple at a home a few blocks away.

Deputies immediately asked if the couple had taken any drugs.

Terry and Fowler said they had not. They did however have photos which they told deputies showed “worms coming out of the floor of their vehicle” and “midgets and other people camouflaged,” reports state.

Deputies noted that the photos only showed a basketball goal and a tree but the couple argued that the people in the photos were camouflaged.

Deputies asked to conduct field sobriety tests and said both suspects showed signs of being intoxicated. Deputies suspect the two were under the influence of “gravel” or “flakka,” which are similar to bath salts, reports state.

Terry and Fowler told deputies they were renting the home on Prince Street and had just moved from Cleveland County North Carolina.

Deputies quickly discovered that Terry had six felony warrants from Cleveland County for drug offenses.

He was taken into custody on a fugitive from justice charge. Terry and Fowler were both charged with unlawful use of 911.
