Police nab drug dealer by SMS

`When Anthony Crown texted a methamphetamine offer, he did not know his client was sitting in a Wellington police station having just been arrested for burglary.

Police replied to the text and arranged a drop-off point where Crown was arrested.

A check of his phone log showed three other drug offers made by text messaging and even while in a police cell his phone was receiving messages from potential buyers.’
