Scammed woman calls POLICE after drug dealer gave her brown sugar instead of cocaine


POLICE officers were left stunned after a would-be drug user phoned them complaining she was scammed after a dealer sold her “brown sugar” for £200 instead of cocaine.

The bizarre exchange was detailed by cops in Craigavon, Northern Ireland, on their Facebook page and appealed to other people who had been “scammed” by their drug dealers to get in touch.

Officers wrote: “Granted, it’s not exactly the sort of slick wheeling and dealing business savvy that would see you go the distance on The Apprentice, but it shouldn’t surprise anyone that drug dealers are scammers!”

The police then summarised the telephone call on their social media account.

It read: “Caller: I’ve been scammed.

Me: Ok, are you out of any money?

Caller: Yeah I paid over £200 and got brown sugar instead.

Me: Instead of what?

Caller: Cocaine

Me: Um…”

The bizarre post attracted a number of comments from Facebook users.

One wrote: “The cheek of it!! I’d rather have the sugar!.”

Whilst another Facebook joked: “Is this what looms after Brexit? £200 for 2 grams of sugar?”

“What’s the world coming to when we can’t trust our friendly neighbourhood drug dealer?” someone else added. 

A spokesperson for the Police Service of Norther Ireland (PSNI) told the Press Association:”Police have spoken to a female in relation to this matter. Appropriate advice and guidance was given.”

Strangely, police said, they didn’t want to leave an official statement following the call, Belfast Live reported.
