Drug buyers busted after calling 911

On Tuesday night, two people who were in Cincinatti suburb Lincoln Heights, Ohio to buy Oxycontin illegally, called 911 after they were ripped off in the transaction.

Police say they were called for a report of trouble. Once there, they were greeted by a man and a woman who stated they were robbed by a man who drove away from the scene.

After further investigation, Tiffany Dople admitted to police she was there to buy 60 Oxycontin pills. Police searched her and discovered 10 unknown pills on her. Dople said she was going to pay $25 a piece for the pills, leading her to lose $1,725 to the suspect who drove away.

Police also arrested James Carver at the scene. Carver told officers he was "buying the pills when the subject took his money."

Both are charged with felony drug possession. The pills allegedly found on Dople have been sent away for testing.

Police took a statement from Carver on the man who allegedly robbed them.

A judge set his bond at $5,000. Dople was released on her own recognizance. (info from
