Texas texter arrested on drug charges

A woman in Texas was hit with drug charges after the drug customer she thought she was texting with turned out to be the police, according to this report:

Debra Langham was arrested Tuesday and charged with felony possession of marijuana after she set up a deal to meet 'the buyer' at a location on West Gentry Parkway.
Lt. Tony Dana said Ms. Langham began texting an employee of the sheriff’s office a couple of weeks ago about a possible marijuana buy.
“At the time our narcotics team was really busy and we just couldn’t get to it, but she started texting again Monday and the officers got involved and played along with the texts,” he said.

How do you text an employee of the sheriff’s office about drugs?

Do not text while using drugs.
