A Hazel Dell man called the Clark County Sheriff's Office on Monday night to report a drug deal but didn't seem concerned that he represented half of the transaction.

Jerry Havens, 51, called deputies to the Star House restaurant, 10604 N.E. Highway 99, about 6 p.m. after buying methamphetamine from a woman he said was his son's girlfriend, said Sgt. Tim Bieber. Havens said he wanted to make a citizen's arrest.
