On Jan. 10, a Springfield, Missouri woman called police because she was upset her drug dealer shorted her $40 on a purchase she'd made.
According to a Springfield Police Department incident report, police received a call that a "Female stated she had paid 40 dollars for Crack Cocaine and was given sugar." The incident report also noted the woman wanted police to arrest the suspect for stealing and also get her $40 returned to her.
When police arrived, responding officers charged the woman with possession of drug paraphernalia.
The Springfield News-Leader reported Cpl. Matt Brown, a police spokesman, said Suzanne Basham, 47, was cited after police arrived in response to her complaint and found her in possession of a crack pipe.
Basham gave police the address of the individual who allegedly sold her the sugar, but the man and woman who answered the door at the address supplied by Basham denied selling drugs and refused police entry to the home.
The Smoking Gun reported in May 2011 a South Carolina man called 911 after he was reportedly given the wrong change from his dealer. In that incident the man paid $60 for the crack, but only received $20 according to a police report. He ended up getting arrested on a disorderly conduct charge.
Earlier in the year, in March, another man walked up to a police car with cocaine in hand to complain when his dealer shorted him.
Reportedly Basham was arrested for drug possession in 2010. No word on a court date to answer to her current charge.
