I had a good laugh with this one. Reminds me of the people who call 911 because someone stole their illegal drugs.
Here's a new one in that vein:http://www.thesmokinggun.com/buster/cocaine/man-complains-police-about-being-shorted-his-cocaine-dealer-031598
You'd be surprised how many calls police get about being "robbed" of $20 by a drug dealer. But we'd usually laugh at the person rather than lock him up.Once I got a call about real robbery that involved a lot of drug money. The victims never actually confessed to a crime, but they were pretty straight with me. There was mutual understanding.I was willing to investigate (more so than most other cops). Just because it was drug money from drug dealers didn't mean it wasn't a real armed robbery. And the victims were far more cooperative than most people I dealt with. If I a solved the case, not only could I arrest a few armed robbers, but I might also have been able to prevent a future retaliatory killing. I didn't solve the case.
