HALIFAX COUNTY, N.C. — A North Carolina man is accused of selling a crushed Pop-Tart to an undercover agent, telling him it was crack cocaine.
WCTI12 reported that Cameron Mitchell, 30, of Rocky Mount, allegedly sold the fake crack cocaine to an undercover agent in June.
The suspect was allegedly making a delivery to a convenience store in Halifax on June 19 when he made contact with the undercover agent.
Mitchell allegedly agreed to sell crack cocaine to the agent for $20 and went and got it from his truck.
The substance tested negative for the presence of cocaine, according to officials. The suspect allegedly said he crushed the corner of a pop tart and sold it as cocaine because he needed money.
Authorities said the suspect was arrested on Sept. 4. He faces charges of selling or delivering a counterfeit controlled substance and creating a counterfeit controlled substance.
