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?"
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.
The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports the case has been turned over to prosecutors.
