Looking for Drugs, Teacher Texts Kentucky Trooper

From the DUH Department.......

MURRAY, Ky. -- It's a tough lesson for a Kentucky middle school teacher.

State police say she sent text messages looking for marijuana to a state trooper instead of a drug dealer.

The trooper was at a birthday dinner when his phone started buzzing with messages about a pot purchase.

Police spokesman Barry Meadows says the trooper thought it was a joke at first, but realized it wasn't after a few phone calls.

So he set up a meeting with Ann Greenfield.

Law enforcement officers were waiting for her when she arrived at the meeting point.

Says police spokesman Meadows: ''She learned her lesson. Program your dealers into your phone.''

Greenfield, who's 34, has been suspended with pay pending results of an investigation.
