JACKSON, Miss. (AP, abc24.com) - Hinds County Sheriff's Office deputies say a woman who was apparently in possession of the wrong phone number repeatedly called and texted a deputy, offering to sell him painkillers.
Deputies said the woman was ignored as a prankster after her first Tuesday night telephone call. But she eventually was arrested after investigators arranged a meeting. She allegedly tried to sell 30 hydrocodone pills.
The woman was booked with possession of a controlled substance with intent to distribute.
Sixty-one-year-old Judy Weible was being held Thursday at the Hinds County Detention Center where she was awaiting the setting of an initial court appearance. The sheriff's office has no information available whether she had an attorney who could comment on the case.
