(TheRedWire.com) – Every now and again, the bad guys make it easy for the police to catch them. When one Florida man didn’t get the high he wanted from some meth he purchased, he brazenly called the police. A few minutes later officers arrived on the scene and met 41-year-old Eugene Colucci. The man told the police he had bought some meth from a dealer in a local bar. Colucci said he was an experienced drug user and knew what meth should feel like, and this wasn’t it.
Colucci stated he believed he purchased bath salts when he pulled out two small bags containing a white substance. The dissatisfied customer gave the bags to the police, asking them to test the powder. Additionally, Colluci asked police to stop the seller from ever peddling fake drugs again. Yet, the alleged drug user couldn’t describe the drug dealer to the police or provide them with the dealer’s contact information.
Deputies were dispatched to a home in Spring Hill, Florida, after 41-year-old Thomas Eugene Colucci called 911 to request that a deputy come and “test the methamphetamine” he had bought for authenticity. Read: https://t.co/SYgrViPk4e pic.twitter.com/HTRu2YCdpt

After testing the white material, police confirmed the substance was methamphetamine. Authorities promptly arrested Colucci, placed him in the back of a patrol car, and charged him with possession of methamphetamine and possession of drug paraphernalia. After Colucci complained of chest pain, the police took the man to the hospital, where a physician cleared him of any ailments. Police took Colluci to the Hernando County Detention Center, where a judge set bond at $7,000.
Sometimes, criminals make blue lives easier.
