Judy Weible called police, Woman called cop to sell drugs, police say, Officials: Pearl woman arrested after calling Hinds investigator to make drug sale. A Pearl woman is behind bars for accidentally trying to sell drugs to a Hinds County Sheriff’s Deputy over the phone, a sheriff’s department spokesman said. Judy Weible, 61, apparently dialed a wrong number last night to sell painkillers, and inadvertently got an investigator with the Hinds County Sheriff’s Department’s Street Crimes Task Force. The investigator thought the call had to be a joke, so he ignored it, said HCSO spokesman Lt. Jeff Scott.
Once the woman called back and text-messaged several times, investigators made arrangements to meet her. When they did, they arrested her with 30 hydrocodone pills, Scott said.
“I would think you’d have a better chance of winning the lottery than accidentally calling a police officer to sell some drugs,” he said. “I couldn’t make that up.”
Scott said Weible is charged with possession of a controlled substance with intent to distribute, and possession of paraphernalia.
“It certainly does make it easier to catch them when they call in on themselves,” Scott said.
Weible is being held at the Hinds County Detention Center, and no bond has been set.
“A case like this would never happen again in a million years, if it wasn’t so sad it would be hilarious,” Scott said. “A 61-year-old lady, this someone who obviously needs some type of help with substance abuse.” Judy Weible calls cop drug deal, judy weible possession of a controlled substance with intent to distribute, hydrocodone, judy weible called repeatedly drugs,
