Man Jailed For Selling “Cocaine” To Cop… It Was A Crushed-Up Pop-Tart

HALIFAX, NC – Cameron Mitchell was arrested in early September for allegedly selling cocaine to police. The only problem was the only kind of rush you’d get from this nose candy was a sugar high.

Mitchell was making a delivery to a convenience store when he encountered an undercover agent who wanted to purchase crack cocaine. Mitchell agreed, selling the officer $20 worth of “crack” to the deputy. Officers arrested him, and when they tested the substance found that it was negative for cocaine.

“On the bright side, at least these officers determined that the substance in question was a sugary treat, not an illicit drug,” reported The Huffington Post. “That was beyond the abilities of the NYPD who, in October 2013, arrested two men on drug possession charges when cops mistook Jolly Ranchers for meth rocks.”

Mitchell was charged with selling a counterfeit controlled substance as well as creating a counterfeit controlled substance.

    So then the makers of powdered dish-soap, or sugar, or flour, or baking soda..etc.etc…. can be accused of making “counterfeit controlled substance” since it looks like cocaine?

    It sounds like he just wanted to screw around with someone and make easy money off of it.
