PIERRE PART, Louisiana — It’s a misdial for the ages.
A Louisiana drug dealer was busted after he accidentally sent a text messages to a sheriff’s deputy while trying to set up a drug buy, police said.
Dwayne Paul Hebert, 39, of Pierre Part, whipped off the misdirected message to an Assumption Parish Sheriff’s deputy on Friday evening in an effort to arrange the delivery of methamphetamine, police said.
The cop played along and set the meeting up, but arranged to have the narcotics squad waiting on standby to swoop in when Hebert showed up.
When he arrived, Hebert was arrested, and deputies found two guns and a stash of meth on him.
He was booked on charges of weapons possession, possession of methamphetamine with intent to distribute and resisting an officer. He was held on $25,000 bond on the drug charges.
Police say they had busted Hebert with two others in November for operating a meth lab out of a boat and that he was free on $90,000 bond in that case.
