PIERRE PART, La. (AP) — Authorities in Louisiana have arrested a man who they say accidentally texted a deputy to arrange a drug sale.
Assumption Parish Sheriff Leland Falcon tells local media the deputy received the misdirected text message Friday from 39-year-old Dwayne Paul Hebert of Pierre Part, arranging to deliver crystal methamphetamine. The officer agreed, then mobilized the Narcotics Division.
The sheriff says Hebert showed up carrying crystal meth and two firearms and now faces charges of possession of methamphetamine with intent to distribute, possession of a firearm in the presence of a controlled substance and two counts of resisting an officer.
Hebert was previously arrested two months ago, accused of operating a meth-lab out of a boat, the sheriff’s office said.
It’s unclear if he has an attorney.
