Azcentral;HELENA, Mont. – General rule of thumb: when looking to buy marijuana, don’t text the sheriff.
Authorities say a Helena teen hit a wrong number and inadvertently sent a message to Lewis and Clark County Sheriff Leo Dutton, saying “Hey Dawg, do you have a $20 I can buy right now?”
What the teen might as well have texted was “I’m just about to light a doobie in public in about 3 minutes and while I’m at it I’m going to be scoring my sorry ass another $20 or so of the good shit. So if you feel like dropping by and hauling my ass to the slammer I’m here patiently waiting for you Sheriff.”
A detective pretending to be the dealer organized a meeting at a time when the boy knew he and another teen would be at a particular store.
The detective spotted two teenage boys and one of the boy’s fathers – who was unaware of what was going on – at the store. He called the phone number three times to make sure he had the right person. Dutton said when the detective showed the teens his badge, one of the boys fainted.
Fainted because he had at last realized his lifetime goal of having his mug covet the ” I got busted doing doobeys and other good shit.”
But fortunately for the teen Mother Teresa was in the neighborhood that afternoon…
No citations were issued after the parents of the boys, who were 15 and 16, got involved.
