BARRIE, Ont. - Police in Barrie, Ont., say they got a strange call from a local restaurant.

A man had entered a restaurant on Wednesday and demanded that staff call police because he was a wanted on an outstanding warrant.

The only warrant that officers were able to locate for the man was enforceable only in Nova Scotia.

However, investigators say the 19-year-old man got his wish and was placed under arrest.

Officers discovered that he had just left another nearby restaurant without paying for his $45 bill.

He's facing a charge of food fraud and officers say they learned he was also in violation of two separate probation orders.
