Let’s say you bought some meth in a recent drug deal. Let’s say you smoked it and didn’t like it. Then let’s say you wanted to get the meth’s purity tested. Who would you call for that “service”?


Probably NOT who Doug Kelly called….


On Tuesday, June 12, 2018, the 49-year-old man from North Florida had a “violent reaction” to some meth he’d recently bought, so he made plans to press charges against his dealer for the inferior product. But first, he had to build a case, and that meant checking the meth’s purity.


So…Mr. Kelly put in a phone call to the Putnam County Sheriff’s Office asking if they’d be willing to test the drugs for him. The deputies told the man they’d be willing to help if he’d bring the drugs to their station, which Mr. Kelly was happy to do.


When the disgruntled druggie arrived at the sheriff’s office, Mr. Kelly gave deputies “a clear, crystal-like substance wrapped in aluminum foil.” Law enforcement officers conducted a field test on the substance which, shockingly, came back positive for methamphetamines. Mr. Kelly was immediately arrested for possession of drugs and walked over to the Putnam County jail where he was held on a $5,000 bond.


Following the easiest arrest in their department’s history, the detectives placed the following ad on their Facebook page: “Public notice: If you believe you were sold bad drugs, we are offering a free service to test them for you. Remember, our detectives are always ready to assist anyone who believes they were misled in their illegal drug purchase.”


Sin makes you stupid.
