A boy became angry when his drug dealer double-crossed him by handed him kitchen spices instead of marijuana, according to police in Utah.

Davis County police said that they have arrested 17-year-old Seth Carreras after being accused of killing 19-year-old Travis Woodson.

Carreras has been charged with one count of first-degree murder.

He was booked into the Davis County jail and Judge David Connors denied the teen’s request for bail.

According to the police investigation, Carreras contacted Woodson, who was a drug dealer, and asked to buy 1.5 ounces of marijuana.

Carreras came over to Woodson’s home in order to test the quality of marijuana.

After smoking a bit, Carreras agreed to purchase 1.5 ounces of marijuana for $121.

Carreras told the drug dealer that he had to go home to bring the cash.

Woodson then placed kitchen spices, including salt, pepper, and paprika, in a baggie.

Woodson gave the bag to his girlfriend, Kayla Gibson, 17, and ordered her to accompany Carreras to his home and give him the bag once he pays her.

Gibson followed her boyfriend’s instructions and collected the money form Carreras.

As soon as Carreras ripped open the bag, he realized that he was ripped off.

Meanwhile, Gibson ran to her boyfriend to warn him that Carreras discovered the truth about the contents of the baggie.

Carreras ran after her and confronted Woodson.

Carreras then shot Woodson multiple times until he fell to the ground.

Carreras continued to fire rounds at Woodson as he lied on the ground.

Carreras then went through Woodson’s pockets and took back the money he paid for the marijuana he never got.

Gibson, who witnessed the shooting, ran out of the home and called the police.
