WEST FARGO, N.D. --
A North Dakota State University student is facing charges after allegedly trying to buy marijuana at the police station.
Saturday's incident was "about the craziest thing I've ever come across," Officer Ken Zeeb said. "This is something that you couldn't even make up."
The 20-year-old woman called the police station about 3:15 a.m. Saturday, asking where she could buy marijuana, authorities said. The dispatcher, after repeatedly telling the woman it was illegal to sell and possess marijuana, then told her that police had some of the drug in the station's evidence locker.
Zeeb had arrived for his 4 a.m. shift about 15 minutes early and was in the evidence locker room when the woman arrived.
"The dispatcher got on the intercom and said, 'You know what? She's here. She just handed me $3 for marijuana,'"
The woman was arrested on charges of criminal attempt and possession of drug paraphernalia.
"She didn't seem like she was really under the influence of drugs or alcohol," Zeeb said. "She understood what was going on and articulated herself well."
