(Newser) – Authorities say a South Florida woman who called 911 to report that she was getting stiffed in a drug deal ended up reporting on herself: She now faces charges including drug possession. The Broward Sheriff's Office reports that 19-year-old Daneshia Heller told a 911 operator Tuesday that she went to a Fort Lauderdale home to buy marijuana, but a man there took her $5 without giving her the drugs. Officials say a deputy checked a white substance in Heller's pocket, which tested positive for alpha-PVP, a psychosis-inducing street drug known as flakka. The South Florida Sun Sentinel reports that Heller was charged with drug possession and misusing the 911 system. (Read more weird crimes stories.)
