Drug arrest after New Jersey man mistakenly texts cop's son about deal

Authorities say a New Jersey man mistakenly sent a text message to a police detective to set up a drug sale and now faces charges.

Authorities say a detective received the text message on his 10-year-old son's new cellphone Friday night. The sender had said he had a quarter pound of marijuana for sale and wanted to meet at a pizza parlor.

Nicholas Delear Jr., of Sussex, met later that night with an undercover police officer but fled when he became suspicious. Police soon stopped his vehicle, but the 33-year-old Delear refused to consent to his vehicle being searched.

Authorities obtained a warrant after a police dog detected drugs in the vehicle. They found four plastic bags containing marijuana and other paraphernalia.
