WEST FARGO, N.D. - A North Dakota State University student is facing
charges after allegedly trying to buy marijuana at the police station here.

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,'" Zeeb said.
