Longview woman arrested after drug text mistake

WARRENTON, Ore. (AP) - A Longview, Wash., woman was arrested in Warrenton, Ore., after mistakenly texting an off duty police officer to see if he wanted to buy some drugs.

Officer Ray Ayers wasn't sure at first if the text was a joke or a mistake, but he played along.

After a series of back-and-forth messages, Ayers met 48-year-old Diana Cochran at a Warrenton grocery store. After confirming she had been texting the officer, police say she agreed to a search and they found methamphetamine, marijuana and prescription drugs in her possession.

Cochran was arrested and charged Friday with attempting to deliver those drugs and was booked into the Clatsop County Jail.
