Baku. 13 September. REPORT.AZ/ The arrest of a local man is going viral after Martin County sheriff's deputies say a man mistakenly texted the wrong number to sell cocaine.
Report informs citing CBS12.com, 29-year-old William Lamberson was arrested and charged with possession of cocaine with intent to sell after meeting up with his so-called “hook up” to sell drugs.
Deputies say Lamberson mistakenly texted who turned out to be Captain Brian Bergen who oversees the Martin County Sheriff's Office's Narcotics Unit.
“His first texts were basically address me, ‘hey bro, this is Will”, what you normally would do,” Captain Bergen said.
Bergen says he and the texter exchanged messages off-and-on over the next few week weeks. There was eventually talk about buying marijuana and then cocaine.
“He immediately responded to that, eagerly jumped on it offering up a connection for some good cocaine,” Captain Bergen said.

William Lamberson was arrested, and charged with possession of cocaine with intent to sell.
Captain Bergen said he is concerned about what could have happened had Lamberson inadvertently texted a child.
“This was somebody that dialed the wrong number, did not know who I was, did not ask who I was, he was that eager to deliver cocaine to somebody it could have been somebody’s child or somebody’s kid who he mis-dialed and basically played it the same way I did,” Captain Bergen said.
Lamberson remains in the Martin County Jail where he is being held on a $40,000 bond.
