NEBO, N.C. — Authorities in North Carolina said they arrested a woman whose wrong-number text about a drug deal was received by a sheriff's deputy.

The McDowell County Sheriff's Office said Deputy P.V. Alkire received a text message Thursday night from a number he did not recognize from a sender who identified herself as "Amy" and asked if he wanted "business tonight," The McDowell News, Marion, N.C., reported Wednesday.

The sender said she was selling "bones," a street term for the prescription anti-anxiety drug Xanax, and Alkire arranged to purchase 10 of the pills at Nebo Truck Stop.
