What some people do to get some.......Cheese??

Woman Allegedly Hires Hit Man for Cheese

Dec 6, 7:01 PM (ET)

MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) - In an unusual case of mistaken identity, a woman who thought a block of white cheese was cocaine is charged with trying to hire a hit man to rob and kill four men. The woman also was mistaken about the hit man. He turned out to be an undercover police officer.

Jessica Sandy Booth, 18, was arrested over the weekend and remains in jail with bond set at $1 million on four charges of attempted murder and four counts of soliciting a murder.

According to police, Booth was in the Memphis home of the four intended victims last week when she mistook a block of queso fresco cheese for cocaine - inspiring the idea to hire someone to break into the home, take the drugs, and kill the men.

An informant described the plot to police, who arranged a meeting between Booth and the undercover officer.

The undercover officer gave Booth some nonfunctioning handguns, bought ammunition for her because she was too young, and the two proceeded to the home under police surveillance.

Booth told the officer that any children inside the house old enough to testify would have to be killed, police said.

A search of the home with the permission of the occupants revealed no drugs - only the white, crumbly cheese common in Mexican cuisine.

    Sounds like this young girl had parents who allowed her to run wild in restuarants when she was a babe, per comments on the other post about children behaving badly.

    Seriously, what kind of person wants something so much that they were planning to kill the occupants instead of just sneaking in when they were asleep and robbing them. This behavior seems so prevalent among some of the youth today. Lately, our relatively safe city has had several homicides because when one kid looks at another crosseyed, the gun comes out and the offended person starts shooting.

    I'm so glad that the police got this tip and were able to get her off the streets. I just hope a smart judge finds a way to put her away for many years.

    The only cheese I've heard anyone around here say they would kill for is the gouda made at Mississippi State Univ.

    A minimum of 20 to life might be justice. If she shows remorse and rehabilitation after twenty years, maybe. Or as long as it takes, up until never.
