Meth ad­dict wanted cops to test stash

Midweek Sport - - NEWS -

A DRUG ad­dict who was hop­ing to get his dealer ar­rested has found him­self be­hind bars in­stead.

Dou­glas Kelly, 49, was con­vinced his metham­phetamine was bad – and bizarrely took it to the po­lice sta­tion to prove it.

Kelly ( above) said he had suf­fered a “bad re­ac­tion” to some meth he pur­chased the week be­fore and be­lieved it was proof that he had been conned.

In a phone call he told cops he wanted his stash tested so that he could press charges against the dealer who sold him the drugs.

They told Kelly they were more than happy for him to come to the sta­tion to get them tested in per­son.

Kelly ar­rived and handed over a “clear, crys­tal-like sub­stance wrapped in alu­minium foil”, say cops in Hawthorn, Florida.

He was slung in the lock-up and charged.
