Getting robbed while trying to buy marijuana poses a problem – it wouldn’t be smart to report the theft to cops.
But one man didn’t seem to care about the potential consequences while doing so last week – as long as he got his revenge, police said.
The man told cops in the Inner Richmond district that he gave a drug dealer $50 for marijuana inside a local bar and never got his buds.
The man then told cops that when he confronted the dealer about stealing his cash, the dealer “exposed a handgun that was tucked into his waistband,” police said.
Cops took immediate action. They stormed the bar in the 400 block of Clement Street, found the dealer, and searched for the gun. No gun was found, police said, but the dealer ended up charged with narcotics violations.
It was not immediately clear if the buyer was cited for his part in the drug deal. And only those who witnessed the failed drug exchange know for sure if a gun was present.
Nevertheless, the “victim’s” revenge must have been sticky sweet.
