Oops, wrong number! What were they smoking?

45471_wrong_numberA North Vancouver RCMP Strike Force officer received a phone call on Tuesday for an offer to buy some marijuana from an unknown male caller.

Unfortunately, the seller was unaware he had accidently dialed the cell phone of a police officer!

Arrangements were made over the phone to purchase an amount of marijuana later that day at an undisclosed location. Police made an undercover buy and subsequently arrested a 25-year-old male and a 23-year-old female, both Coquitlam residents.

The drug dealers now face recommended criminal charges of trafficking in marijuana. Police also located an undisclosed amount of marijuana, cocaine, heroin, and methamphetamine in their vehicle – adding an additional recommended charge of possession for the purpose of trafficking.

“It is not every day that drug dealers call us to do business with them,” said Cpl. Richard De Jong. “I am sure they were as surprised as we were!”

Indeed, what were the drug dealers smoking!
