Florida Drug Dealer Arrested after Texting County Commisioner
You might want to make sure you have the correct phone number if you’re a drug dealer.
After sending a “random text message” to a County Commissioner in Florida trying to sell him a “eight-ball” of cocaine, Jack Fisher, 18, was detained on Monday.
According to Fox News, following a call from the county commissioner to the police, Fisher’s phone number was located. “At the edge of a pond near Bird of Paradise Drive in Palm Coast,” that’s all the authorities needed, and a meeting was arranged.
When Fisher arrived, cops arrested him. He was in possession of 3.2 grams of fentanyl, which could have killed 1,585 people. He was accused of illegally using a two-way communication device and criminal possession of fentanyl with intent to distribute.
It’s unclear what the context of the “random text” was, but he didn’t just text a County Commissioner—the man had been sober for 11 years.
Fisher was charged with unauthorized use of a two-way communication device and criminal possession of fentanyl with intent to distribute. The Sheriff Perry Hall Inmate Detention Center jailed him on a $3,000 bond.
Prior to this arrest, Fisher was detained in April on misdemeanor counts of marijuana possession and under-20-gram alcohol possession.
