The police involvement is demonstrably crazy. I mean, "a duty to investigate?" What if I told them I'd been told my a gopher stolen jewels were stashed in your (the hypothetical you) liver? Would they "have to" cut your liver open just in case I was an accomplice to the gopher?

No, this story fails the common sense test resoundingly and embarrassingly. Especially considering that with actual evidence the police often fail to act or fail to follow up (it's happened in my own experience).
