Grace Sium, 20, a student at North Dakota State University, called a West Fargo, N.D., police station, asking the police dispatcher where she could buy some drugs. The dispatcher told her that not only was it illegal, the police weren’t going to sell her any drugs. After she persisted, the dispatcher told her to come down to the police station and someone would hook her up. You can imagine what happened next.
Officer Ken Zeeb — who arrived for work at 3.45am — recalled: “The dispatcher got on the intercom and said, ‘You know what? She’s here. She just handed me $3 for marijuana.” Zeeb quickly moved to cuff the master criminal, and later explained: “She didn’t seem like she was really under the influence of drugs or alcohol. She understood what was going on and articulated herself well.’
Zeeb, who has worked narcotics for over seven years and “and has arrested people for trying to buy drugs at a house as it was being searched by police,’ admitted the bust was “about the craziest thing I’ve ever come across.’ He rightly concluded: “This is something that you couldn’t even make up.’ — The Register
Today’s Stupid Person of the Day was, perhaps, not quite in her right mind. Grace Sium didn’t get any dope, but she did get a trip to the Cass County Jail.
