A West Texas police officer did the right thing after he wrongly had received a call from a man allegedly seeking drugs. He arrested him.

Brownwood Officer Aaron Taylor on Wednesday got a cellphone call from a man who accidentally dialed the wrong number and mentioned wanting something.

Assistant Chief James Fuller says Taylor told the caller he had the wrong number, then the man called again about "trying to get some weed."

The Brownwood Bulletin reports Taylor offered to swap marijuana for prescription drugs, then met with and arrested James Dunn and Bertha Dunn.

The husband and wife were in the Brown County Jail on Friday, with bond at $10,000 apiece, on charges of delivery or offering to deliver a dangerous drug. No attorneys were listed for the pair.
