Do Not Try to Buy Your Drugs from Crime Stoppers
A New York man with a hankering for drugs and a very twitchy finger made a major misdial, reaching Crime Stoppers instead of his intended target. Which is one way of cutting to the chase. Despite the sheriff answering the phone "Crime Stoppers," the man still announced he was looking to score some drugs and requested a hookup. Ultimately the hapless caller was used as an informant, but not arrested himself, probably because there was no point. You live, you may or may not learn. [via AP/Yahoo News]
