Florida Man Tries To Pay Water Bill With Crack Cocaine; Coke Dealer Puzzled By Money Order For $28.36
A Deltona, Florida, man apparently attempted to pay his water bill with an envelope containing 3 grams of crack cocaine, according to aMiami TV station:
The Deltona Water office was evacuated on Sept. 23 after the water-department employees called the Volusia County Sheriff's Office to take a look at the envelope with the white powder, authorities said ...
According to the report, it is common for customers to drop off envelopes in the counter that contain their water bill payments.
But in this case, when the employee opened the envelope, there was no statement or writing on it. Instead, the envelope contained a clear plastic bag with 3 grams of crack cocaine.
The man was videotaped by surveillance cameras; sheriff's deputies say he rode away from the water office on a bicycle.
Singing a happy tune, we hope.
