(CBS) ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. - Katrina Tisdale, a 47-year-old Florida woman, was arrested after she allegedly called 911 to ask police to help get her money back from a drug dealer, CBS Tampa Bay reports.

Bet that didn't end well.

According to the Tampa Bay Times, Tisdale called 911 Monday night after she reportedly spent $50 on marijuana and cocaine.

During the two calls she made to 911 that evening, Tisdale reportedly claimed that she had been the victim of a theft. When local authorities responded, she explained that she wanted them to help her get her $50 back from the dealer.

Police told the paper that Tisdale had second thoughts regarding the purchase after realizing the transaction left her broke until her next social security disability check arrived.

Her plan backfired - Tisdale was arrested and charged with misusing the 911 system. She had reportedly faced the same charge in July 2011 and received jail time as well as a fine.

Tisdale was taken to the Pinellas County Jail and remained there until Tuesday night in lieu of $100 bail.

Will she call 911 to get her bail money back?
