UH-OH: Woman Mistakenly Texted Sheriff's Deputy As She Tried To Make Drug Deal

MAILONLINE.COM - A case of crossed wires led to a woman being arrested - after she mistakenly texted a sheriff's deputy to set up a drug deal.

Amy Leigh Brown, 35, entered the wrong number into her mobile telephone when she sent the message: 'Hey, it's Amy. Do you want business tonight?'

Unfortunately for her the recipient was a McDowell County Sheriff's deputy - who replied by asking her to meet him.

She texted back saying she had some 'bones', meaning the prescription anxiety drug Xanax, and he replied that he wanted 10 tablets.

Brown, of Scooby Doo Drive in Marion, North Carolina, described what she would be driving and the deputy found her parked behind the Nebo Truck Stop.

Captain Ricky Crisp said a total of 25 Alprazolam pills, the generic form of Xanax, were found on the suspect.

He added: 'She had deleted all of her texts and denied texting.

'So the deputy called the phone number the texts came from and Brown's phone rang.'

Brown was charged with one felony count of possession with intent to sell and deliver a Schedule IV controlled substance.

She was taken into custody in lieu of a $5,000 bond.
