If someone is going to send a text message regarding a drug deal, they should make sure they send it to the right number. They should also make sure they are not sending it to a police detective. On Oct. 2, The Sentinel reported that a man in New Jersey accidentally sent a text message to a police detective. The message was regarding a drug sale and now the man is facing criminal charges.
The detective had a new cell phone and received a text message from someone saying that he had a quarter pound of marijuana that he wanted to sell and asked for him to meet at a pizza parlor. The detective met at the pizza parlor with an undercover police officer, but the seller became suspicious and ran. However, police pulled the suspect, 33-year-old Nicholas Delear, Jr. over, but he refused to let the police search his car. A police dog indicated that there were drugs in the car and so authorities obtained a search warrant.
Police discovered four plastic bags of marijuana and other drug paraphernalia.
This isn't the first time someone involved with marijuana has done something to get caught. Recently a man was seen and arrested after he shot an arrow that had marijuana attached to it. He was aiming for the recreation area in a local jail, but it hit the roof instead.
