Wrong number: Drug suspect calls Texas officer

Submitted By AP Wire Service

BROWNWOOD, Texas (AP), May 20 - Police say a West Texas couple has been arrested after the husband mistakenly called an officer's mobile phone twice and allegedly arranged a drug swap.

Brownwood police Assistant Chief James Fuller says the man misdialed Wednesday and reached Officer Aaron Taylor, who told the caller he had the wrong number.

Fuller told The Associated Press that the man called Taylor back and asked about ``trying to get some weed.'' The Brownwood Bulletin reports the officer offered to swap marijuana for prescription drugs, then met with and arrested James Dunn and Bertha Dunn.

The husband and wife were in the Brown County Jail on Friday, with bond at $10,000 apiece. They face charges of delivery or offering to deliver a dangerous drug. No attorneys were listed for the pair.
