Sometimes dialling the wrong number can go really wrong, as a North Virginia man recently found out. In an attempt to sell some weed he accidentally texted a police officer instead of his buyer, and the rest is history.
That's the text message that a Fairfax police officer received last week when a drug dealer accidentally solicited cannabis to the officer instead of his buyer. The message was handed over to narcotics detectives who then set up a meeting with the man. He was later arrested with over a pound of cannabis and charged with possession with intent to distribute.
So, maybe don't jump right into the marketing pitch when you text a new number for the first time.
