    Police in Memphis say a woman mistook a block of white cheese for a cocaine stash and tried to hire a hit man to kill four men and steal it. Police say Jessica Sandy Booth was mistaken about the hit man, too. He was an undercover policeman. Booth is 18. She's charged with four counts of attempted murder and four more of soliciting a murder. Authorities say Booth was in the men's house recently and thought a block of queso fresco cheese was cocaine. The cheese is used in cooking. Police say Booth, who is an aspiring model, told the hit man she needed $7,900 to pay a modeling agency. The undercover officer was recording Booth's conversation and police say they have her saying any children old enough to testify would have to be killed as well. People in the home gave police permission to search it. They found only the cheese.
