GAINESVILLE, FL (WFLA) – Gainesville Police have a message for people looking to buy drugs: Check the number you’re texting.
On Saturday night, the police department shared two photos on its Facebook page showing a wrong-number text an officer received.
“Hey do you have bud I might need some,” the person wrote.
In response, the officer texted a picture of his badge with the message, “I think you have the wrong number.”
The officer also added, “Drugs are no good for you.”
The person texted back with a shocked face, saying “Oh my god. I’m so sorry.”
