FAIRFAX CO. – We’ve all gotten the occasional call or text from someone who contacted the wrong number. A simple “Sorry, I think you have the wrong number” is normally the extent of that conversation.

Well, apparently that’s not the case when the person contacting the wrong number texts a police officer and offers marijuana.

Fairfax County Police say a man texted one of their officers,

“HMU if you wanna get together I’ve got some nice ins we can burn.”

Police say a detective continued the conversation and schedule a time to meet up.
