CLEVELAND, N.C., July 1 (UPI) -- North Carolina authorities arrested four people on drug charges after one suspect mistakenly called a deputy for a drug deal instead of a fellow suspect.
Rowan County sheriff's deputies arrested Sandra Davis, Henry Cloer, Jermiere Walker and Pamela Henderson on an array of drug charges for the incident, the Salisbury Post reported.
The arrests came after Davis made repeated phone calls to deputy Jagger Naves early Monday. The fourth call ended with a voice mail in which Davis yelled "This isn't even a $10 rock. You need to make this right!"
Naves alerted Cleveland Police of a possible drug deal and called Davis back to tell her he was an officer and asked her to stop calling.
Davis called Naves again saying she couldn't meet up in a parking lot because "police were everywhere," a Sheriff's Office report stated. Davis asked if they could meet in a different lot, to which Naves agreed.
Naves met Davis, who was with Cloer in a green 1987 Chevy pickup, in the parking lot and said he immediately recognized Davis' voice as the person who called him earlier.
When asked to step out of the car, a small bag containing a gram of crack cocaine fell from Cloer's pants, the report said. Authorities also found drug paraphernalia in the pickup.
As Naves seized the pair's cellphones as evidence, one of them rang and the number that appeared on the phone's screen was one digit off from Naves' own cell number.
Naves met the caller in another parking lot and Walker and Henderson were subsequently arrested after deputies found three crack cocaine rocks in their car.
Davis and Cloer were arrested and charged with felony possession of cocaine and possession of drug paraphernalia.
Walker and Henderson were charged with felony possession with intent to manufacture, sell and deliver cocaine and possession of drug paraphernalia.
Henderson was further charged with resisting, obstructing or delaying an officer and felony maintaining a vehicle for storing drugs.
