Police: Man accidentally texts cop advertising drugs for sale, gets arrested

SPRINGFIELD, Fla. (WJHG/WECP)-- We've all accidentally called or texted the wrong person, but an errant text landed a Florida man in jail on drug charges.

The Springfield Police Department in Florida says Corey Michael Hunt, 20, texted someone he thought was a friend to "announce the availability of controlled substances for sale." SPD says the text instead went to a narcotics officer who relayed the information to Springfield police.

Springfield police then responded to the text, offering to buy the drugs. Hunt allegedly sold an officer five 10-mg Diazepam pills.

Because the sale happened next to a church, Hunt is being charged with sale of a controlled substance within 1000 feet of a church as well as two counts of possession of a controlled substance with intent to distribute. Officers reportedly found 67 acetaminophen/codeine tablets and nine more Diazepam 10 mg tablets.

Hunt was taken to the Bay County Jail.
