Officers in snowy Minnesota were told a man was seen "motionless outside" and "wearing no coat in the cold".
US police received a surprise when they were called to check on the welfare of a cardboard cutout figure.
United Kingdom: Officers in the snowy northern state of Minnesota were told an adult male had been seen standing "motionless outside" while "wearing no coat in the cold and hugging a pillow".
The figure turned out to be a life-size cardboard cutout of local millionaire and inventor Mike Lindell, the CEO of the popular MyPillow brand.
Jordan Police Department wrote on its Facebook page: "Those cardboard cutouts sure can look real from a distance and the caller certainly was not wanting to get too close thinking who is this deranged person standing outside in the cold hugging a pillow; always better to call the police (sic)."
Mike Lindell shared the post himself on Thursday evening, and simply posted: "Unreal!".
February 2019 was one of the snowiest on record in Minnesota, with temperatures plummeting past -20C (-4F) on some occasions.
