Drug dealing teen calls cop by mistake
The Associated Press
GULFPORT, Fla. — A 14-year-old boy was arrested after dialing a wrong number and offering to sell drugs to the person on the other end — who happened to be a police detective.
The 22-year-old driver of the car the boy was riding in was arrested as a principal, as well as for driving with a suspended license.
Parks' phone number is unlisted, and there were no similar phone numbers found in the boy's cellphone, police said. Detectives said the boy, whose name was not released, likely dialed a random number to try to drum up new business.
Parks said Tuesday that the boy has been released from custody.
