MENTOR -- Police are calling this a "drug deal gone bad" when a woman calls them after a man whom she was buying drugs from took her money and didn't give her the drugs.

Just before 2 p.m. Wednesday, police were called by a woman who said a man "stole her money." When police arrived at the parking lot of the Best Buy on Plaza Boulevard, they found a woman, 31, who said she had tried to buy Percocet from a man.

She said the man, Scott Zupancic, 24, of Eastlake, took off with her money and she chased him and they began to fight.

Police arrested Zupancic for trafficking in drugs, possession of criminal tools, aggravated possession of drugs and an outstanding warrant for a probation violation out of Cuyahoga County.

No word on whether the woman was charged.
