I’ve read some crazy stuff, but this one takes the cake. I’ve actually worked at a tele-marketer in college to make some quick cash. Yes, I’m the one who interrupted your dinner with, “this will only take a minute” or thirty…
But I never called anyone and tried to sell them drugs. I mean, is this guy too lazy to comb a park, a school yard, the mall? (I’m being a bit snarky. I actually hate that people sell drugs anywhere.)
That’s what this cheeseball did though. He cold called people to sell drugs. So how was he caught? You decide.
A: He called and a teenager answered and agreed to buy the drugs. They set up a meet at Dunkin Donuts. A cop in the drive thru caught the exchange and busted them both. Maybe it pays for cops to eat donuts after all.
B: He called and got a mom who runs the PTO and MADD group in her community. She agreed to to the purchase and called the cops. They watched while the transaction was made and then moved in and made the bust. Don’t mess with moms.
C: He called and randomly reached a police officer, who agreed to buy the drugs. He made the arrest himself at the drop. Murphy’s Law. It’s a real thing.
