Charleston, South Carolina (SafeCITY) - Dexter White, a 41-year-old North Charleston man was jailed after he allegedly called police because a man short-changed him on a drug deal.

According to the North Charleston Police Department, White called 911 at about 4:30 a.m. Friday and reported that a drug dealer had short changed him in a cocaine purchase. He also stated that he wished to speak to a "canine unit."

White reportedly told investigators that he had given his dealer $60 for crack cocaine, but only received about $20 worth. He reportedly called 911 after the cocaine dealer allegedly refused to refund him the $40 difference. He also admitted to smoking all of the product he had received before calling 911.

White was booked into the Charleston County Detention Center on charges of disorderly conduct. He is being held in lieu of $400 bond. Court records show that he has a long criminal history, and had been in that jail before.
