Texas Woman Calls Cops to Complain About Bad Pot Deal, Gets Arrested

| by Allison Geller

It’s natural to complain when a business sells you a shoddy product. But when that product is illegal, you might be out of luck. East Texas police arrested a woman who called dispatchers to complain that a dealer had sold her poor-quality marijuana.

37-year-old Evelyn Hamilton was arrested on a charge of possession of drug paraphernalia after she called Lufkin police Monday, irked that her $40 had bought her only “seeds and residue.”

Hamilton had first tried to take her complaint to the dealer’s family, but they wouldn’t budge. So she turned to the law.

A cop went to her home to hear her complaint, says Lufkin Police Sgt. David Casper. When he got wind of what the complaint concerned, he asked Hamilton if she still had the substandard weed. Hamilton pulled a small baggie of pot out of her bra.

Hamilton was arrested, and her bail was set at $500.
