March 25, 2011

SALT LAKE CITY – A wrong-number dial landed one man in jail for drug possession Wednesday afternoon.

The 30-year-old man was looking to purchase Oxycontin when he mistakenly called a police officer’s cellphone, Salt Lake City police said.

The officer made arrangements to meet the man near 2100 South and 700 East. The man had a pound of marijuana, scales and other paraphernalia with him when police arrested him, officials said.

He was booked into the Salt Lake County Jail on suspicion of multiple drug offenses.

    Guess I'm not the only one this has happened to... Lol. Dayshift officer gave the number to our car to a witness, who later called at nightshift, thinking it was her "friend". We subsequently set-up a deal for some meth in her trailer park. Unfortunately once we arrested her we discovered she had a small child at the trailer. Other than that, it was quite entertaining.

    Had that happen to me. Except mine were text messages. The guy still wouldn't leave me alone after I told him I didn't know him. My Sgt. wouldn't let me set up the buy. We didn't have the manpower to take me off the road. Still funny though.
