Gresham teen arrested after texting drug deal to police chief

by

GRESHAM, Wis. (WSAU) - We all know texting while driving is a bad idea.  Apparently texting and selling drugs isn’t a good mix either.

The Shawano County Sheriff’s Department has arrested a 17 year old suspect and accused him of selling drugs. The Gresham teenager was at a home in Shawano last Saturday when he was given a phone number as being a possible customer. He texted the number, offering 42 pills of Tylenol with codeine, saying he wanted cigarettes and 120 dollars in exchange.

The number actually belonged to Stockbridge-Munsee Police Chief Jim Hoffman. The chief called deputies and they worked together to set up a fake drug deal when the teen suspect was arrested.  The suspect has not been named.
