A St. Petersburg woman is being held on bond after being arrested for giving her last $50 to a drug dealer and then thinking twice about the transaction, authorities said.
Katrina Tisdale, 47, called 911 to tell officers she wanted the money she had just spent on marijuana and cocaine back, according to St. Petersburg Police.
"Sounds like she sold herself a little short on her $50 and she needed the money back to do something else," said Michael Puetz, a public information officer with St. Petersburg Police.
Puetz said Tisdale receives her income from social security disability benefits.
She was charged with misuse of the 911 system and a police report listed cocaine possession as an aggravating factor in her arrest.
Tisdale was arrested after a similar incident in July 2011 after she lost $40 during another drug transaction, Puetz said. She told officers she would report a rape if they did not get her money back, so she was charged with filing a false police report, he said.
Tisdale's bond is set at $100.
