Not My Crack Pipe Excuse Actually True
on 3/7/2006 (3)
Police were called to the scene at 4:30 am after neighbors reported a women pacing the street and yelling at the streetlight for being too bright.
|Ma'am, I think you dropped something... |
"When we arrived, the suspect was sitting down on the curb, she had realized she wasn't going to win her battle with the streetlight and she was just going to let it kill her," said Police Officer Sam Getz. "We searched her person and found a small back of crack in a Ziploc bag."
And not surprisingly, the two police officers found a crack pipe laying on the ground by her feet.
"Typically when we find a suspect in possession of crack, the crack pipe that is laying at their feet is also theirs," said the second officer on the scene, Charles Wilson. "In fact, every other time, it has been."
The two officers cuffed the suspect and brought her into jail. She claimed the whole time that the crack pipe wasn't hers and she was just holding the crack for a friend.
"The story was totally unbelievable," said officer Getz. "But not unbelievable as in that song Unbelievable, it was unbelievable like that I couldn't believe it."
As unbelievable as her story was, an unexpected visitor to the station soon changed everything.
"A man came in and reported his crack pipe missing," said officer Jamie Shine. "He described his crack pipe and it was an identical match to the one we had recovered earlier that night. Additionally, he said he lost a small bag of crack which he had in a Ziploc bag."
The crack pipe and crack were returned to the grateful man and the woman suspect was released without being charged.
"It just goes to show you that things aren't always as they seem," said officer Getz. "That's why the justice system is innocent until proven guilty, you never know when it might be someone else's crack pipe."h="0"0" hei
