Fort Myers Woman Calls 911, Says She Was Shorted in Weed Deal: Police

A southwest Florida woman landed herself behind bars after calling 911 to complain about being shortchanged in a drug deal.

According to a Fort Myers Police Department report, 36-year-old Erin Klich called police to complain that she'd attempted to buy $75 worth of marijuana, but never got the goods from the dealer.

Officers arrived outside a home to find Klich outside the reported dealer's home, still on the phone with police. Klich told the responding officers that the dealer inside took her money.

Klich was arrested for misuse of 911.

Upon searching Klich, police found a clear plastic baggy, later determined to contain 5.4 grams of marijuana.

Klich was also charged with possession of marijuana under 20 grams.

It is not known whether Klich has hired an attorney.
