We have all been taught that if someone takes our money, it may be a reason to call the police. Apparently it seemed logical for this Florida man to call the police when he thought the drugs he bought weren't the right kind.
Douglas Kelly called Putnam County Sheriff's Office and said he purchased methamphetamine about a week earlier and had a “bad reaction” after smoking the narcotic. He wanted them to test the drugs so that he could press charges against the person who sold them to him.
The Putnam County Sheriff's Office was more than happy to oblige and invited him to bring in the suspicious materials.
Kelly gave deputies samples of the “clear, crystallized substance” for testing.
The substance field-tested positive for methamphetamine, the drug Kelly intended to purchase.
Kelly was arrested and charged with possession of methamphetamine. He was walked to the Putnam County Jail and held on a $5,000 bond.
“In an effort to ensure the quality of the drug the suspect purchased, detectives told Kelly if he came to the sheriff's office they could test the narcotic he purchased,” the Putnam County Sheriff’s Office wrote on Facebook.
“Remember, our detectives are always ready to assist anyone who believes they were misled in their illegal drug purchase,” the Facebook post concluded.
Kelly probably realized in retrospect that maybe that wasn't the best course of action.
