Raise your hand if you have ever messed up and sent a text message to the wrong person by mistake? If you could see me right now, you would notice I have both hands up—way up. However, this week's perp derp has me beat.
According to the crew at WLOX, a drug dealer mistakenly texted a local police officer while trying to set up a drug deal. Whoops!
In the text he wrote, “Hey Jen lmk if you need any trees.” The guy even used a tree emoji to drive home his point. After the officer received it, he played along and set up a meeting to buy some “trees,” aka marijuana. The man told the officer where to meet up and said he would be the dude walking his dog. He even told the officer to bring a scale with him.
They both met up at the designated location, and to the dealer's surprise, he was arrested on the spot. After a quick search, the officer found 16 grams of marijuana.
The man was charged with one count of possession of marijuana less than 20 grams, possession of drug paraphernalia, and possession of marijuana with intent to sell.
