Really, how many times do we have to say this?
If your drug dealer shorts you, steals your money, or provides a substance other than the illegal one sought, do not call 911.
Suzanne Basham, 47, made that mistake yesterday morning when she dialed police in Springfield, Missouri to report that she had paid $40 for crack cocaine that turned out to be sugar.
Basham, who was not seeking a sugar high, asked cops to arrest her dealer for theft (and, of course, secure a refund for her). While patrolmen went to the address where Basham said she purchased the crack, residents there denied selling dope and declined to let investigators into the home.
Since cops discovered that Basham was in possession of a crack pipe, she was cited for possession of drug paraphernalia. She is pictured above in a mug shot snapped in October 2010 following a collar for drug possession.
0bama’s new consumer protection czar should get on this right away.
Another Obama voter!
He will probably make her the consumer protection czar.
Who is her dealer, Safeway?
Seeing that the fedz generally are more interested in catching dealers than end user customers, she might not have been wrong to offer to rat on that dealer. Only trouble was, the fuzz found her pipe.
Smoking sugar makes you stupid. lol
