Deputies in Nevada County, Calif., arrested Jessie Mulligan on Friday after she allegedly tried to arrange a drug deal with a friend through a text for fentanyl, an opiate similar to morphine.
The message was actually sent to a narcotics detective who decided to take her up on the offer and arranged a meeting, according to 14NewsOnline.com.
She was arrested and charged with three felony counts, according to Nevada County Sheriff’s Dept. spokesman Lt. Steven Tripp.
“She was surprised. She probably felt a little bit silly that she had contacted law enforcement,”
Tripp said according to CBS Sacramento.
Tripp adds that the officers appreciated the tip.
“When we get calls from criminals saying, ‘Hey, do you want to buy something?’ and it happens to be stolen, or of a criminal nature, sure, absolutely it makes our job easier,”
