It's usually best not to text the sheriff with a marijuana purchase request. That may seem obvious, but a Helena, Montana teen sent a text message last week looking for pot -- and instead of contacting the dealer, he hit a wrong humber and accidentally sent the message to Lewis and Clark County Sheriff Leo Dutton.
The drug detective got both of the teens' parents involved, and ended up deciding not to issue any citations.
"When the detective saw there were parents that wanted to be involved he took the right action and I'm really proud of the deputy," Sheriff Dutton said.
"Trying to buy drugs is a crime, but it's probably worse that they had to face their parents," Dutton said.
