Meth dealer accidentally invites police
Mon, 10 Sep 2012 12:25p.m.
An Idaho man apparently trying to get the most bang for his drug-purchasing buck accidentally texted a narcotics detective while he searched for people to join him in a methamphetamine buy.
Police in Lewiston arrested 37-year-old Aaron D Templeton Wednesday on suspicion of conspiracy to deliver methamphetamine.
Court records say one of the police detectives received a text Wednesday morning asking if he knew anyone looking for drugs.
After determining it wasn't his co-workers playing a joke, the detective arranged to meet the man to deliver US$150 that would be pooled with money from other buyers to enable a bulk purchase of meth.
Templeton was arrested when he arrived at the designated meeting place.
Police say it all started with a wrong number.
