Man Arrested After Complaining To Police He Was Cheated in Coke Deal

East Hartford Police Dept.

The 40-dollar bag of cocaine Antonio Recinos bought from his friendly neighborhood drug dealer seemed to him to be a bit short. So the East Hartford, Connecticut man dialed 911 to report that he had been ripped off.

However, before getting into the details of how he’d been wronged, the 35-year-old aborted the call.

Was it because he wised up to the self-incriminating implications of this ill-convinced use of emergency services? Oh no. It’s because Recinos spotted a cop and figured it would be more efficient just to take up his complaint with an officer face-to-face.

Recisos was arrested, upon showing the cop the narcotics in question, and is being charged with drug possession.
