Yeah. April Fools' jokes are normally wacky things that you play on people you know, don't involve you running off with several hundred dollars, and don't have a chance of backfiring on you in that you could end up either in prison or a shallow grave. Although I may just be a bit too timid with my April Fools' jokes.
Police in Florida said an alleged drug dealer who fled with $525 from undercover agents claimed the incident was an April Fools' Day joke.
The Marion County High Intensity Drug Trafficking Area task force said undercover agents arranged through a confidential source to purchase 40 oxycodone pills from Sara Medeiros, 30, and they met with her Friday at an undisclosed location, the Ocala (Fla.) Star-Banner reported Tuesday.
The task force said Medeiros told the agents she had to take the money to another location to get the drugs from a third-party dealer and she left the scene with $525. Agents said the woman never returned.
Medeiros was later located inside a vehicle in Ocala and she told officials during an interview she had taken the money, which was recovered, as an April Fools' joke.
