Errant text message leads to drug bust
BOISE, Idaho (AP) -- A 21-year-old Meridian man has been arrested after police say he mistakenly sent a text message to a junior high student asking him if he wanted to buy some drugs.
Alexander Michael Casper was arrested Wednesday. He was to make an initial court appearance Thursday on a charge of possession of a controlled substance with intent to deliver.
Prosecutors say a 13-year-old boy received a text from someone on Wednesday offering to sell him some ecstasy. The boy showed the message to a school resource officer and police contacted Casper by text and set up a meeting. Police arrested Casper Wednesday night after they say he sold 15 capsules of ecstasy to an undercover officer.
Police say the student does not know Casper.
