Hash dealer texts Wis. trooper's 10-year-old grandson

Texted a 10-year-old boy whose grandfather is a state trooper asking: "You want to buy some hash?"

Associated Press

MUSKEGO, Wis. — A Wisconsin case shows why it's a good idea to check the phone number if you're texting a drug offer.

A 19-year-old Muskego man was arrested Sunday after a 10-year-old boy received a wrong-number text message asking, "You want to buy some hash?"

It turns out the boy's grandfather is a Wisconsin state trooper, and the boy was at his grandfather's home when the message arrived.

The boy didn't know what the message meant. But the grandfather did, so he called a colleague who with on-duty troopers sent back messages to arrange a buy.

When no one showed up for the deal, the man left. Troopers arrested him, seizing a bag with 5 grams of hash.
