Teen sells Skittles as ecstasy... to an undercover cop
Trying to rip off ecstasy users by claiming Skittles are the real deal? Might want to avoid selling to undercover cops. They usually test their purchases and shame you publicly. The teen probably thought he scored big time. Now he just looks idiotic.
Christin Marcelle Banks, 18, is charged with selling ecstasy twice to an undercover police officer. One time he gave him Skittles instead.
Banks allegedly sold an undercover cop 21 pills Dec. 22 and only two were actually ecstasy. On Dec. 30, Banks allegedly sold 200 pills to the undercover cop. Those were identified as Skittles.
