Drug bust "takes the cake" for suspect stupidity

Price then reportedly said again “We got to do this quick. The detective is coming” and she goes back into her house to retrieve the pills, the officer said.

The three officers, who had not been planning on making a buy, scrounge together $100 with which to purchase pills from Price.

“While they’re trying to find the money, she comes back out and shows me three pills that were the same pills she showed me earlier that day,” the undercover officer said.

The officer said he had on the same clothes and looked the same as when he had interviewed Price just hours earlier.

“At about 3 o’clock that day I interviewed her in the same clothes I was wearing at 10 o’clock and looking the same way I looked at 10 o’clock, so she shows me the three pills and I said ‘Can we get more’ and she said ‘Yeah, we’re getting 2,000 on Monday,’ so I went ‘I’ll take a hundred if you got ‘em,’ so she says ‘Well how much will you pay for ‘em?’ and I said ‘I’ll give you $100 for them right now.’ And she says ‘OK, but we got to hurry up,’” the detective recalled.

“Obviously this is a humorous situation,” the officer said of the other agents. “They can’t believe this is happening.”

The officer said Price came out of the house and poured 56 one-milligram blue tablets into his hands. He gave her $100 and asked for more pills.
