Teen Texts Sheriff Looking for Weed

Paul Lilly

Listen, we're not looking to spark a debate over marijuana, so let's not get sidetracked in the comments section. But no matter where you stand on the issue, we can all probably agree that texting your local sheriff looking to score a bag of weed is a dumb idea.

"Hey Dawg, do you have a $20 I can buy right now?," a teen from Helena, MT sent out in a text message.

In his haste to get high, the teen texted the above message to the wrong number, and out of all the wrong numbers he could have sent that message too, it ended up going to Sheriff Leo Dutton, who initially thought it was a joke.

"I'm thinking, 'Hey this is odd,'" Dutton said. "I was looking around to see if there was someone outside my window playing a prank."

There wasn't, so Dutton enlisted the help of the Missouri River Drug Task Force and set up a sting to catch the teen. It worked, with Dutton getting the parents involved. No citation was issued.

The moral of the story? Double check those digits before texting.
