Messaging snafu madness blows pot deal up in smoke

Man texts cops flogging 'reefer'

Providing a secure and efficient Helpdesk

A West Virginia man sent a text offering weed to the State Police by mistake Wednesday, and is now cooling his heels in the big house, AP reports.

Joshua Wayne Cadle, 19, allegedly sent the message Wednesday to a phone number that used to belong to a 'friend', only to discover that the cursed number now belonged to the state police.

State Police Trooper B.H. Moore said Thursday that an unidentified officer received the errant text on Wednesday and set up a meeting in a shopping center parking lot that night. The trooper booked Cadle for delivery of a controlled substance and possession with intent to deliver.

"He text messaged that and asked his friend if he wanted to buy some reefer," Moore said.

Almost as shocking to us is the persistence of the word 'reefer' in the common vernacular in certain more rural areas of the republic. No word on whether reefer-induced madness or some other type of short-term mental malfunction contributed to the incriminating text imbroglio.®
