Drug Dealer Accidentally Texts Narcotics Detective About Buying Drugs

Aaron Templeton is perhaps not the brightest light in the industry of extralegal pharmaceutical distribution. But he’s at least learned a valuable lesson: If you must text people, from your phone, about buying drugs, check to make sure you have the correct phone number.

Templeton got a number wrong when texting about a drug deal. This would be bad enough, but Templeton managed to pick the worst possible wrong number: A narcotics detective.

The detective at first thought he was being pranked. After checking with his colleagues, and discovering that this was in fact legit, he set up a meet with Templeton and arrested him when he brought out the drugs.

In short, double check your numbers. Or just don’t sell drugs. That seems to be a good idea too.
