Here's your sign ...

EUGENE, Ore. (AP) - A man hoping to score some meth asked the wrong person for the drug. The Eugene police vice narcotics unit had searched an apartment on Monday night and were questioning the tenant when a man came by and asked to buy drugs, Sgt. Jerry Webber said.

As detectives stood around with their badges hanging from their necks and latex gloves on their hands, the man asked the tenant, "Can you hook me up?" Webber said.

The tenant was seated on the couch with handcuffs around his wrists. A detective was writing him a citation.

The tenant said, "I don't think I can help you," Webber recalled, but the visitor persisted. He then allegedly turned to a detective and asked him for meth.


The detective told the visitor, James Wilkinson, 34, of Eugene, he was under arrest for attempted possession of methamphetamine.

Wilkinson tried to run, but officers grabbed him, Webber said.

They found a small amount of marijuana in his possession, Webber said.

Officers cited the tenant, Gary Puckett, 58, for possessing meth and for endangering the welfare of a 15-year-old girl who was in the apartment.

They also arrested a man who walked into the apartment carrying seven baggies of meth, Webber said.

A fourth man showed up at the apartment carrying an illegal butterfly knife, Webber said. He told police he had come to tell Puckett not to sell drugs to his girlfriend. He left with a citation for carrying a concealed weapon.

After that, police stopped answering the door, Webber said.

I know I shouldn't be surprised by this since I work in the prosecutor's office and read stuff like this daily, but geez, is this guy dumb or what?

I'm going to go with "dumb".

I took a 911 call last night from a woman, then her husband, who said their van was stolen. Excuse me: slurred their van was stolen. Turns out they were so drunk when they got out of the bar that they forgot where they parked it, and after someone gave them a ride home they suddenly realized it wasn't there anymore.

Yup; daily stupidity

When the bad guys outnumber police by a hundred to one, and aren't shackled by the same rules that cops are, you have to figure criminal stupidity is the only thing going for us.
