Drug deal: Crack cocaine for your finger

Published: Tue, October 5, 2010 @ 2:39 p.m.

YOUNGSTOWN — A city man told police he paid too much for the crack cocaine he purchased, then was assaulted when he demanded his money’s worth of the drug.

The 55-year-old Redondo Avenue man told police his drug dealer came to his home Sunday and charged him $160 for about $30 worth of crack cocaine. The man said he went to a Wirt Street address and asked for the appropriate amount of the drug, but was told he could only have it if he would allow dealers to cut off his finger.

According to police reports, a dealer began cutting the mans finger, but the man changed his mind. Reports say the dealer then took a large knife and chopped at the man’s arm just above the wrist. Police noted a 2-1/2 inch cut on the man’s arm just above the wrist.

The man called an ambulance and was taken to St. Elizabeth Health Center for treatment of his injuries.

This is too ridiculous to possibly be true.

Maybe that is what Biden is talking about in the picture in Vindy. "If you elect John Kasich as governor, you will have to buy your crack using your fingers!"

If drugs are all about the money, of what value would the finger of a drug addict be?

maybe the dealer didn't want the addict to be able to finger him! he could've been looking for a hand out. you've got to hand it to him for backing out of the deal.

Who writes these stories? Is this really true? Let's assume this is true; the drug addicts in our country are so far gone, nothing would surprise me at this point.

These people are the blight upon our country, and make our society worse for their existence.
