Drug dealer called cops to report robbers

A Long Island man should have known he would be arrested when he called police to report he had been robbed during a drug deal that went bad. Nassau County Police said Christopher Canonico called last week to say he had just been robbed in North New Hyde Park.

Canonico was set up by two women who agreed to buy heroin at a gas station. While they were in Canonico's car, a third person with a gun came up to the car and robbed him of $340, a cellphone and wallet.

Police said Canonico was charged with criminal sale and criminal possession of a controlled substance. The women and man with the gun were charged with robbery and other charges. (info from the Associated Press, photo from
