FARGO

A man who got stiffed by a drug dealer after paying him decided to try to get his money back - by calling police.

Fargo police say the man called authorities to report a robbery involving a knife at 6:05 p.m. Sunday at the Stop-N-Go station at 3220 12th Ave. N.

Upon further investigation, officers discovered that the man was actually upset that the dealer had taken his money and driven off without giving him the drugs, Sgt. Ross Renner said.

Police planned to forward the case to the Cass County state's attorney for consideration of criminal conspiracy charges against the man, Renner said.
