FORT MYERS, Fla. – A drug deal gone bad turned out even worse for a Fort Myers woman after police say she decided to complain to 911.

Erin Klich, 35, said she was shorted when she tried purchasing $75 worth of marijuana, but when she didn’t get the weed, she called 911 about it.

When police arrived at a home on Lafayette Street, Klich was waiting outside still on the phone with dispatchers. Klich told officers the dealer inside took her money.

Police handcuffed Klich and put her in a patrol car. They arrested her on a charged of misuse of a 911 call.

Officers say they later found a bag of pot wedged in the seat.

If Klich wouldn’t have called the emergency line, it’s likely she could have avoided the charges. Instead, Klich was jailed with two misdemeanors, one for the misuse of 911 and the other for possession of marijuana.
