A pair of Murfreesboro residents are in jail after sending texts to buy drugs to the wrong person.

An anonymous person called police to report they were getting texts on their new cell phone number about purchasing drugs. When authorities arrived, they found messages about purchasing meth, or "ice cream" in the text. When asked "how much," a text of $140 per gram" was sent back.

After establishing On the Run Market on Mercury as the place to meet, the officer easily found the suspects. The officer was given consent to search the vehicle, which turned up heroine, meth and a glass pipe.
