Of all people to text. A Louisiana man was arranging a crystal meth deal when he accidentally messaged a sheriff’s deputy about the delivery, the police revealed on Monday.

An Assumption Parish Sheriff’s official reportedly texted back ‘OK’ last Friday, before the Narcotics Division was enlisted, WBRZ reported.

The suspect, 39-year-old Dwayne Herbert, arrived with crystal meth and two firearms, Sheriff Leland Falcon stated. The deputy took Herbert into custody, who now faces multiple charges ranging from possession of meth to weapons possession and resisting arrest.

The sheriff did not reveal how much of the drug the suspect possessed in the meth deal.

This was not Herbert’s first run-in with the law. He was already free on a $90,000 bail package for a November arrest on allegations that he was operating a meth lab out of a boat, the sheriff reported.

It is not clear whether he has retained an attorney.
