The “double-whammy” of someone my age from where I now live acting stupid near to where I grew up-
A North Carolina woman was arrested on Friday night after complaining to Putnam County(Fla.) deputy about the quality of the crack cocaine she had purchased. Eloise D. Reaves, 50, walked up to Deputy Jeffery Pedrick at about 11:30 p.m. while he was working a call at a convenience store located at the corner of state Road 20 and state Road 21 in the Hawthorne area of Putnam County.
According to police, Reaves told the deputy that a man in the parking lot had sold her bad crack. They said Reaves then took the crack from out of her mouth and placed it on the trunk of the deputy’s patrol car.
Pedrick informed Reaves that if the substance tested positive for cocaine, she would be arrested. When the test came back positive, Reaves complained that it was wax and cocaine mixed, and that she wanted the deputy to make the man give her her money back.
Reaves was arrested and booked into the Putnam County Jail and held on $1,504 bond, on which she was later released.
Police said the man whom Reaves accused of selling the cocaine was contacted by Pedrick. He denied knowing Reaves and allowed the deputy to search him. The search revealed that he did not have any cocaine or money on him.
