Growing up, many kids are told to find a police officer if they need help.

It's a lesson Demarco Alonzo Thomas took to heart.

Thomas was an alleged drug courier who said he misplaced $20,000 in drug money and wanted authorities to write him an excuse note so a Tucson, Ariz., cartel wouldn't kill him, the Associated Press reported.

In November, when Thomas, 30, was traveling through Tucson International Airport from North Carolina when he reported misplacing the money, according to a search warrant requested by the Tucson Airport Authority Police Department.

Fearing for his life, he called police to ask if an officer could write a note to the local cartel explaining that he lost $20,000 in drug money; he thought it might smooth things over if he could show cartel members a phony receipt from the local police stating they had seized the money, the Arizona Daily Star reported.

But when police searched his belongings, they found $17,000 in a pair of pants and another $3,000 in his wallet, Geobeats reported.

The unsympathetic officers arrested him on suspicion of money laundering and racketeering.

He actually had the 20,000 on him, 17,000 in a pair of jeans and 3,000 in his wallet.

Pro-tip. He didn't lose the money, he was trying to steal it and tried to get the cops to help him by writing a bogus note that they seized it.
