(RNN) - Sometimes a price increase is so steep, it must be criminal. In this case, it was.

The Northern Territory Police, Fire and Emergency Services in Australia said a woman called to report the cost of her marijuana. According to the Facebook post, her drug dealer asked for far more money than she was used to paying.

"Completely offended, the woman demanded that police investigate this 'outrageous' price hike," police said. "When asked for further details, the woman hung up."

They said the call was "unusual" but offered to assist others facing the same problem.

"If you know a drug dealer who is ripping you off, give us a call," they stated. "We’d love to help."

They didn't specify who they'd help.
