Man’s wrong number text to sell marijuana sent to Fairfax Co. officer

FAIRFAX, Va. (AP) — A mistake worthy of a Cheech and Chong skit has left a man under arrest in Northern Virginia on drug-distribution charges.

A man who dialed the wrong number sent a text message last week to a police officer, offering to sell marijuana, Fairfax County police said.

Narcotics detectives took it from there. The detectives scheduled a meeting and the man was arrested in possession of more than a pound of marijuana, police said.

Officers found another pound of marijuana after obtaining a warrant and searching his home.

Police did not release the man’s name. He’s been charged with possession with intent to distribute.
