Teen accidentally texts sheriff to buy pot

September 4, 2010


— General rule of thumb: when looking to buy marijuana, don’t text the sheriff.

Authorities say a Helena teen sent out a text message last week in search of pot, but instead of contacting the drug dealer, he hit a wrong number and inadvertently sent the message to Lewis and Clark County Sheriff Leo Dutton.

The text read, “Hey Dawg, do you have a $20 I can buy right now?”

Dutton told the Helena Independent Record he initially thought it was a joke, but he quickly realized it was a real request for drugs. He responded to the text, and a detective pretending to be the dealer organized a meeting with the boy last Wednesday.

“The kids knew that they were going to be at a particular store at a particular time,” Dutton told The Associated Press.

No citations were issued after the parents of the boys, who were 15 and 16, got involved.

Just like you don't do grocery shopping when you're hungry, don't send out a text looking for pot when you're already high.

He didn't really say what he wanted to buy. The cop got the idea but it certianly wouldn't have held up in court without more evidence.

That's hilarious though.

so if the parents didnt get involved, there would have been a citation issued??? doesnt sound like much of a lesson learned if ya ask me, probably went home and changed his phone book set up speed dial and made a purchase

Don't pull me over mister policeman

Don't pull me over mister policeman

What I’ve got to do won’t hurt anyone

Where I’ve got to go won’t hurt anyone

Don’t pull me over

I’ve got mouths to feed

Don’t pull me over

They depend on me

What I’ve got to say won’t hurt anyone

What I’ve got to do won’t hurt anyone

When the moonlight turns to blue light

Makes me so afraid

So let me go

Leave me ‘lone

‘til I’m home and safe

Don’t pull me over let me pass on by

Don’t pull me over
