BEACON TRANSCRIPT – Because working as a Sheriff’s deputy is seldom dull, we give you the story of a man from Florida who recently ended up in jail. Apparently, the individual, a Hawthorne resident, called the Sheriff’s Office to ask him to come over and test his methamphetamine.
Florida Suspect Said He Had a Bad Reaction to Methamphetamine
What would you do if you’ve just purchased some methamphetamine? Call the authorities to have it tested, of course. As unlikely as it would sound, a 49-year-old man from Hawthorne, Florida did just that.
Putnam County Sheriff’s recalls the mildly amusing incident which took place at the beginning of last week. The man’s story was shared on the Sheriff’s Office’s Facebook page.
So, a guy calls the Sheriff’s Office because he had a very bad and very ‘violent’ reaction to a recently purchased batch of methamphetamine. The individual, later identified as 49-year-old Douglas Peter Kelly, told the Sheriffs that he thought his drug dealer gave him the wrong merchandise.
Wanting to play along with the individual, the sheriff kindly asked Mr. Kelly to come down to the station to have this drugs tested for free. One would think that a lawman inviting you to bring drugs in a police station is a trap but not our fearless Florida man.
As soon as he arrived at the Sheriff’s Office, Kelly was taken into custody and charged with methamphetamine possession. He’s currently being held at the Putnam County Jail. A magistrate set Kelly’s bond at $5,000.
In the Facebook post, the sheriff wrote that the suspect dropped the tinfoil-wrapped meth on his desk and thanked him for wanting to test his drugs.
To conclude the post, the sheriff reached and said that anyone could come down to the station to have their drugs tested for free.
