Teen's text to marijuana dealer mistakenly sent to sheriff

    A Montana teen looking to buy marijuana tried to text a drug dealer but hit the wrong number and instead hooked up with the county sheriff.
    The message:

    "Hey Dawg, do you have a $20 I can buy right now?"


    The Independent Record of Helena reports that Sheriff Leo Dutton initially suspected a prank, but quickly realized it was the real deal and messaged back: "How much we talking?"

    The sheriff then helped set up a meeting with an undercover drug officer who busted the buyer and a teen-age friend.

    The newspaper said the teens "turned white and their knees began to wobble" when the detective showed his badge.

    The officers decided not to issue a citation, the newspaper says, but instead got the teens' parents involved.

    "Trying to buy drugs is a crime, but it's probably worse that they had to face their parents," Dutton tells the paper.

    And look! It's happened again...

    Mistaken text message to former reserve deputy leads to arrest


    ASOTIN COUNTY - A drug arrest came easy for the Asotin County Sheriff's Office over the weekend.
    [imgr=white]http://www.drugs-forum.com/forum/attachment.php?attachmentid=16779&stc=1&d=1284648974[/imgr]
    "They received information about a person wanting to buy hydrocodone," said Asotin County Sheriff Ken Bancroft. "They had texted a former reserve deputy of ours that has since moved to Island County, he had no idea who this person was so he called our office up, talked to Sergeant Spaulding about this and Sergeant Spaulding took action on it by texting and setting up a meet at the Evan's Street pond."

    The sheriff's office says that's where they arrested Dustin Musgrave, Adam Sijohn and Ryan Stifanick. Bancroft said they also found four guns during the arrest and are charging Musgrave with being a felon in possession of a firearm. Sijohn was arrested for having a loaded weapon in a motor vehicle and all three were arrested for attempted possession of a controlled substance.

    "They just kind of handed themselves to us," said Bancroft. "I don't know how they got the reserve deputy's phone number unless it was a recycled phone number or what the deal was."

    One of the articles mentions they wanted to buy weed, and does not mention the firearms.
    The other says hydrocodone, adds an extra person, the names, and that they had loaded firearms and where arrested for having loaded weapons in a car.

    Seems a bit different if they are indeed about the same case, just goes to show how differently a case can be reported depending on whos doing so.

    I don't like to hear about anyone getting busted but they deserved to be locked up just for calling someone 'dawg'.
  6. Balzafire
    These are two entirely different, but similar cases. Rather than start a new thread, I decided to put them both in one thread. Sadly, there will probably be more added shortly.

    Intercept & Redirect. The 'mistake' is how obvious their bullshit story is.

    If it was his regular dealer, he should have known something was amiss when the sherriff replied back: ''how much we talking''... It goes without saying that any drug dealer would know how much product for that amount of money.

    Or, people should learn NOT TO USE TEXT MSGS EVER. Not only is there a chance of something like this to happen (cause clearly there is) but there is also a history and if someones phone gets busted and msgs are still there you get screwed.

    swim also is against texting stuff about drugs, but NOONE ELSE IS it drives him crazy. first texting is such a pain in the ass, and if this person got pulled over, the cops would read his texts if he got arrested. like three days ago swim got a weird text message, and he replies what? then they said "can you get any pills" swim was paranoid as fuck thinking the cops got this kids phone and texted swim that, didn't sleep a wink that night. turns out the kid is just a moron, swims gonna tell him to only call him, and if hes at work just say "can swiy help me out?" swim knows a guy who will break his track phone in half if he there's a cop behind him.
