Cops: Drug Dealer Accidentally Texts Police
An arrest soon follows in New Jersey
By John Johnson, Newser Staff
A detective in New Jersey’s Andover Township got a strange text on his new cell phone: Hey, it asked, want to buy a quarter-pound of pot? Well, sure, replied the detective, who then set up a rendezvous. The would-be seller smelled a rat upon arrival and fled, but police soon confiscated four bags of marijuana from his vehicle, reports NJ.com. Nicholas Delear (yep, his real last name), 33, now faces a slew of drug charges in what might be the easiest bust of the year.
