(Newser) – Two strange marijuana-related arrests from the police blotter:

  • Bad strategy: A woman in East Texas got herself arrested after she called police to complain that a dealer had sold her low-quality marijuana, reports the AP. Evelyn Hamilton spent $40 on the pot and says she called the cops when the dealer refused to give her a refund. She was charged with possession of drug paraphernalia—after pulling the pot she had left from her bra as proof.

  • Bad strategy, II: When police pulled over a driver in Maine and found marijuana in the car, he told them it couldn't possibly be his. The reason? He fessed up to having just stolen the vehicle, reports the Franklin Sun Journal. Police say Douglas Glidden was telling truth about the stolen car, but he still faces charges of theft, driving under the influence, and, yes, possession of marijuana.
