Florida Man Unhappy With His Meth Asks Cops to Check It Out

A Florida man unhappy with the quality of his meth decided to ask the cops to check it out for him in hopes that he could press charges against his drug dealer.

The cops obliged and then arrested him on charges of drug possession, The Orlando Sentinel reported.

It was almost too good to be true, for police at least.

About a week ago Douglas Peter Kelly of Hawthorne purchased methamphetamine.

The drug is a stimulant usually used as a white, bitter-tasting powder or a pill, and in 2016 was the biggest contributor to drug overdose deaths in the states.

After smoking the methamphetamine, Kelly had a "violent reaction," which he put down to having been dealt the wrong drug.

But rather than confront the dealer on his own, he decided to enlist the help of the police.

Kelly called the Putnam County Sheriff’s Office and said he wanted to have the substance tested so that he could press charges against the man who sold him the drug.

Going along with it, detectives told Kelly to bring the drugs to the sheriff’s office so that they could test it.

"Kelly drove to the sheriff’s office and handed detectives a clear, crystal-like substance wrapped in aluminum foil," the department said, according to KHOU 11.

The substance tested positive for methamphetamine, which is what Kelly had originally intended to purchase, but the trip to the sheriff's office was more than just a waste of time and gas for Kelly.

Officers promptly arrested him on charges of possession of methamphetamine and walked him over to the Putnam County Jail and was held on $5,000 bond, The Orland Sentinel said.
