WESTFIELD, Mass. (The Westfield News) – City police were called Friday to intervene in a dispute about the quality – or indeed the authenticity of – marijuana allegedly sold by a Free Street resident.
Police report that the Free Street resident came to the station Friday morning to complain that he was getting threatening text messages from another man.
A supervisory officer said that the victim is well known to many city officers from previous experiences and is more often on the other side of police calls.
Sgt. Jeffrey Baillargeon reports he spoke with the complainant and found that the text messages the suspect sent demanded a refund of the money his mother had paid the complainant for marijuana which was not satisfactory.
Baillargeon also reports that he found that the transaction occurred in Huntington but he nonetheless spoke with the suspect who agreed to stop dunning the seller and said that he had reimbursed his mother for the money she lost in the bogus marijuana transaction.
