Florida Man Tries to Pay Water Bill With Crack Cocaine

Yesterday, an envelope full of a suspicious white powder showed up at the the Deltona Water office up in Volusia County. Fearing the worst, authorities ordered the place evacuated. Though, after testing it was discovered the white powder wasn't anything like anthrax, but rather crack cocaine.

So, how'd it get there? Someone might have attempted to pay their water bill with crack.

According to the Daytona Beach News-Journal, customers regularly drop off cash payments at the office. So no one really paid much attention when the man came in and handed a clerk an envelope. But when the employee opened it they didn't find a bill or any sort of payment, instead they found the powder.

The office was evacuated, but the substance was determined to be crack before authorities went into full-on anthrax scare mode.

Now authorities are trying to find out exactly what happened.

"The clerk (at the counter) said she had never seen the man before," sheriff's spokesman Brandon Haught told the paper. "He didn't say anything to her, he just handed her the envelope and walked out."

Of course, crack addicts aren't known for their constant mental acumen. Dude might have been trying to pay his water bill and got the envelopes mixed up.

He must have smoked crack with the person at the payment window before
