is more impressive when you consider the utter stupidity that surrounded us during our formative years.

Woman calls authorities after drug deal goes bad

By Bernie Delinski Staff Writer

SHEFFIELD -- It's getting to the point where a crack cocaine user can't even trust her dealer these days.

Police received a call around 3:30 a.m. Monday to respond to a theft complaint at a 14th Avenue residence.

They arrived to find a 48-year-old woman, who told them someone had just stolen $8 from her, according to a Sheffield police report. The report lists the complainant's name as Eloise Davis.

The woman told officers she had gone to the suspect's home to purchase crack cocaine, the report states.

Police said she told them she doesn't know the man's name but would recognize him if she saw him again.

The woman told officers she told the man she was there to purchase crack, according to police. The police report states the man went back inside the residence, and returned a few moments later with a substance she described to officers as "a piece of Sheetrock."

She confronted the man about the bogus crack, at which point the man grabbed the $8 from her and ran back into the residence, according to the report.

That left her standing outside, with no money and no crack.

Upset about the theft and failure to successfully make the drug deal, she called Sheffield police and complained. Police arrived and wrote an incident report on the matter.

No arrests have been made in the case, Sheffield police Capt. Greg Ray said.

"Obviously, this case is still under investigation," he said.

That's absolutely hysterical, Clay. I particularly like the line:

"That left her standing outside, with no money and no crack."

Oh, the bounty I would pay to have witnessed this moment firsthand.
