Man accidentally texts Florida detective requesting marijuana


A man texted the wrong person asking to purchase marijuana: a detective.

Gainesville police shared on the agency’s Facebook page screenshots of the text messages between one of their detectives and the unknown man:

Man: Hey do you have bud I might need some.

Detective: *shares image of badge* I think you have the wrong number. Drugs are no good for you.

Man: oh my god

Man: I’m so sorry

Police suggested in the Facebook post, “Please double check the number before you text. Also, drugs are bad, mmmkay?”

It’s unknown whether the man has been identified or arrested.
