Suspect drug dealer's errant text message to cops leads to bust
An errant text message is costing three New York drug-dealing suspects dearly.
Police say the suspects made a mistake when trying to text a potential buyer, and instead reached a Dutchess County task force agent.
The three are due in town court in Pine Plains on Wednesday to face felony charges of criminal possession of a controlled substance.
The three were arrested after arranging a meeting with the agent, who pretended to be the buyer. Police say they recovered 60 bags of heroin.
Said task force Sgt. Brett Orlich: “Their bad luck is our good luck.”
