FLINT, Mich. - Authorities say a man accused of stealing a car then reporting it stolen remains in custody after telling Flint police he was robbed at gunpoint while trying to buy crack cocaine with a credit card.

The Flint Journal says the man reported Thursday night that a 2003 Chevy Malibu had been stolen. Police reports indicated the vehicle was previously stolen out of Lapeer, about 50 miles north-northwest of Detroit.

The suspect is being lodged at the Genesee County Jail.

I am way behind the times. So now illegal drug dealers take credit cards? I thought it was a strictly cash business.

Why am I not surprised it was Detroit?

Detroit is any place in MI east of Lowell.

Was working in a restaurant in Colorado in 1975 and someone left their cocaine in the restroom, and they had it announced on the speaker system. Really funny. “Anyone seeing a bag of cocaine in the women’s washroom and picking it up, please report to the front desk.”

I'm sure the local ACORN Office can provide assistance and advice in this area.

This is why the term "criminal master mind" is an oxymoron. They are all stupid.

Now if this guy was on the Dave Ramsey program, he would know that it’s better to pay cash for your crack purchases. :)
