Woman Seeking Crack Cocaine Calls Police After Drug Dealer Sells Her Sugar Instead…

Posted: January 13, 2012 in People

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.
