Oops, teacher mistakenly messages cop for pot buy

Trying to message her dealer, teacher sent messages to state trooper instead. Not just a simple pot bust, she is charged with conspiracy to traffic within 1,000 feet of a school.

In a case of really bad luck or sheer obliviousness, a Kentucky middle school teacher text messaged a state trooper while trying to organize a drug deal, reports the Associated Press.

Trooper Trevor Pervine was having a relaxing birthday dinner with his wife and parents when his phone started buzzing with messages about a marijuana purchase. At first Pervine thought it was a birthday practical joke, but after making a few phone calls, he realized this was the real deal.

Kentucky State Police spokesman Barry Meadows said a meeting was arranged with Ann Greenfield, 34, who arrived at the meeting point and was arrested.

"She learned her lesson. Program your dealers into your phone," Meadows said.

Greenfield, a teacher at Murray Middle School, was charged with conspiracy to traffic in controlled substances within 1,000 feet of a school, possession of marijuana and possession of drug paraphernalia, Meadows said.
