Cops are there to help, right?

Even when you need help because your drug deal goes bad.

Two men say they were robbed at gunpoint while trying to buy 20 pounds of marijuana.

So, they called 9-1-1.

The sheriff's office in the Daytona Beach, Florida-area says the men went to a home Monday with $12,000 to buy the drugs.

Two men at the home jumped them, took their money and drove off.

The would-be buyers jumped in their own car to follow the robbers, calling 911 for help.

The other car got away, but deputies went back to the house, where they arrested a guy and charged him with robbery.
