An Arkansas man has been arrested after he allegedly paid his water bill with cash and 7.1 grams of methamphetamine.
James Hoey, 66, allegedly stuffed the drugs into an after-hours drop box with his own bill.
Police subsequently searched Hoey’s Paragould home where they found another 45 grams of meth and 3 ounces of weed along with pipes and scales, according to the Arkansas Democrat-Gazette.
When confronted, Hoey allegedly said “it must have been a mistake on his part.”
According to police, Hoey was then asked if he was a dealer and said “No, not really,” because he “only sold to three or four people.”
