An east Texas woman who allegedly was trying to set up a drug sale turned out to be mistakenly texting law officers. The Smith County Sheriff's Office says 51-year-old Debra Langham of Lindale was booked Monday on a marijuana possession charge. She was freed the following day on $5,000 bond. Jail records did not list an attorney for Langham.

Investigators say she was caught after agreeing to meet an alleged buyer at a certain location. Langham had provided a description of her vehicle.

Deputies recovered about $400 worth of marijuana.

Lt. Tony Dana says Langham apparently put in the wrong number when the sheriff's office began receiving the texts several weeks ago.
