Man calls 911; claims drug dealer didn't bring him marijuana, cocaine he bought

Posted: Updated:

WILMINGTON, NC (WECT) – A New Hanover County 911 dispatcher received an unusual complaint Tuesday, when a man said that he wanted to file a police report after a drug dealer allegedly failed to bring him the marijuana and cocaine that he had paid for.

In the 911 call, the caller, identified as Dave, claimed that he had met with his drug dealer and given him $80 in exchange for the drugs. The man who took the money then reportedly told Dave he would go get the drugs, and would meet him at the Scotchman gas station at Wilshire Boulevard and Kerr Avenue, but he never showed up there.

"I'm waiting on this guy to do the right thing," Dave said at one point the 911 dispatcher.

Dave also said that what the reported drug dealer had done to him was unlawful. He referred to two people in the beginning of the phone call, but later only talked about one man taking his money.
