Hinds County deputies said a 61-year-old Pearl woman is accused of accidentally calling a detective to make a drug deal.

The Sheriff's Department said Judy Weible accidentally called the cellphone of a detective on their Street Crimes Task Force. At first, he thought it was a joke and ignored her follow-up calls.

"In initial calls, she wanted to sell some pills. He blew her off, and evidently she didn't like being ignored, so she started sending a series of text messages," Lt. Jeffrey Scott said. "That's when we kind of took it seriously."

Deputies said they were able to set up a time to meet her and make an arrest. The Sheriff's Department said Weible was carrying 30 hydrocodone tablets, which they said sell for about $20 each.

Weible has been charged with possession of a controlled substance with intent to distribute. She's also charged and is accused of carrying a marijuana pipe. She was being held at the Hinds County Detention Center in Raymond.
