Florida Woman Calls 911 to Get Her Money Back From Drug Dealer
A St. Petersburg woman went and bought herself some weed and cocaine from a local drug dealer. The stash was about 50 bucks worth.
But she soon realized that 50 dollars for drugs was way over her budget and that this impulse purchase was now going to leave her broke.
So she did the logical thing: She called 911 emergency to have the cops find the drug dealer so she could get her money back.
Katrina Lorraine Tisdale, 47, called 911 on Monday evening demanding that police get her money back, according to authorities.
Police say that Tisdale became salty and had buyer's remorse when she realized that she was broke and that her social security disability check wasn't coming around for some time.
So, naturally, like most of us who have at one time or another bought ourselves something we thought we wanted only to realize it put a dent in our bank account and, therefore, we immediately returned the item to the store, Tisdale wanted her money back from the man who sold her some illegal drugs.
Of course, not only is asking the cops to help you get a refund from a drug dealer a bad idea; it's also illegal to call 911 and demand such services and bother them with things that don't involve dying or a burglary or something like that.
Cops arrested Tisdale on a charge of misusing the 911 system, and she was hauled to the Pinellas County Jail in lieu of $100 bail.
However, this wasn't the first time Tisdale tried to use 911 as her personal concierge.
Back in July 2011, she called 911 over a similar complaint and of course earned herself a trip to jail.
She pleaded no contest to reporting a false crime at the time and also had to serve jail time and pay some fines.
According to records, this latest incident is Tisdale's 12th booking at the Pinellas County Jail.
