After a man called police to inform them that he had been duped into buying $100 worth of fake crack cocaine, he and another man were tossed in jail.
Police arrested 50 year old Keith Ross, and 43 year old Edward Parr, after the two argued over the sale of bits of soap, police said. The incident began on Saturday about 11 a.m. when Houma, La. police said Ross was harassing people for money and threatening them with a screwdriver.
After issuing Ross, seen above, a summons on a charge of aggravated assault, police were called to a motel on New Orleans Boulevard where Parr informed them that he was sold fake crack cocaine by Ross.
Parr told police Ross sold him the fake drugs and fled with his $100. It turns out that Ross had sold Parr a small plastic bag with bits of soap, police said.
Parr was arrested on a charge of conspiracy to purchase crack cocaine. Officers then found Ross and arrested him on charges of distribution of fake crack cocaine and theft under $300.
