There are a lot of things I don’t understand. One of them is how criminals, drug dealing ones specifically, manage to text the authorities with sales offers on a semi-regular basis. Is it common to have cops in your contacts, or are that many people simply that unlucky?
Perhaps we should ask Amy R. Horman and Pandora L. Cowgur for their opinion, since an arrant text from Horman to an employee of the Perry County, Missouri Sheriff’s Department made them the latest to be qualified to offer one up.
The police weren’t interested in buying anything, but they were more than happy to search for it. That search netted them about 3 quarters of a pound of marijuana, rolling papers and packaging along with some scales. It netted Horman charges of felony distribution of a controlled substance and misdemeanor unlawful use of drug paraphernalia. Cowgur got felony possession of a controlled substance, misdemeanor possession of up to 35 grams of marijuana and misdemeanor unlawful use of drug paraphernalia. Sounds like everybody scored huge.
I have to ask. When these two get their one phone call, who’s going to make sure the number is right?
