Drug dealer dupes duo using sugar
Police in Shenzhen detained two men on June 1 who had brought 26 bags of sugar crystals in the belief they contained methamphetamine. The men were caught after an anonymous tipoff about a drug deal. The man who sold the bags was detained shortly after in a rented room that contained about 167 kilograms of ephedrine, a raw material for the manufacture of crystal meth. He said he had been commissioned to make the drugs in return for HK$15 million ($1.9 million), but after a monthlong spending spree, he had still not made the drugs, so instead he gave the clients sugar.
