Odds and ends
DAVENPORT, Iowa -- A man picked the wrong customers when he tried to sell marijuana to three off-duty police officers.
One was even wearing a T-shirt promoting police memorial week.
The officers had just returned from a boating trip Monday night when the 35-year-old man approached Sgt. John Hutcheson and asked him if he "smoked," police said.
Hutcheson told the man to go talk with Officer Jim Meyrer and Detective Mike Martin, who were standing nearby, police said.
The man then asked Meyrer and Martin if they wanted to buy marijuana. Meyrer said yes and asked the man if he had a pound.
The suspect told the officers he had two ounces, then showed a plastic bag containing a green, leafy substance, police said.
The man was arrested on two counts of drug possession.
