Drug Dealing Suspect Busted After Text Message Goes To Cop

AMADOR COUNTY (CBS13) – An Amador County woman was arrested recently in a drug dealing sting after she accidentally sent off a text message that tipped off authorities.

The woman allegedly sent a text message to a person requesting a drug deal, but it turns out she got the number wrong and instead, sent a text to a Galt police officer, according to Amador County Undersheriff James Wegner.

The suspect met with the undercover officer and allegedly sold a controlled substance to the officer and was arrested.

Police have not yet released the name of the suspect. They’re hoping she’ll lead them to the dealer.
