A Sarepta woman learned the hard way that trying to sell fake drugs is worse than selling the real thing.
Tiffany Colley, 28, of the 100 block of First Street, has been charged with distribution of a false CDS (methamphetamine) after trying to sell it in an undercover buy.
According to Springhill Police Chief Will Lynd, he went to Colley's residence to serve an active warrant, along with Springhill Det. Ronald Wedgeworth and Webster Parish Sheriff's Lt. Shawn Baker.
"The warrant was from agents that went to buy methamphetamine from her, and she sold something she claimed to be meth, but it was not meth," Lynd said. "It was not another controlled dangerous substance, but it doesn't matter. If you sell it under the assumption that it is (CDS), there is a charge for it. In fact, it's actually a worse charge than selling the real drug."
After her arrest, Colley was transported to the Springhill Police Department by Off. Rosetta Burnett. She was later transported to Bayou Dorcheat Correctional Center, where she is held under a $20,000 bond.
