A woman from Northern Ireland complained to the police that she was sold brown sugar instead of cocaine. Police officials who were dumbfounded took to Facebook to share their strange interaction with the woman. The UK woman called the police to say that she was tricked by her drug dealer. Officers in Craigavon, Co Armagh, described the exchange on their Facebook page and called for people who have been "scammed by your dealer and would like payback" to get in touch.
They wrote, "Granted, it's not exactly the sort of slick wheeling and dealing business savvy that would see you go the distance on The Apprentice, but it shouldn't surprise anyone that drug dealers are scammers!" They further wrote, "Anyone who has been scammed by their dealer and would like payback should call Crimestoppers or 101 (non-emergency number). A dishonest drug dealer. What’s the world coming to?!"

A spokesman for the PSNI said, "Police have spoken to a female in relation to this matter. Appropriate advice and guidance were given." While purchase or any deal including cocaine illegal, police officials stated that drug deals do not "care about NOTHING other than lining their own pockets."
