Text Message Lands Three in Jail

CALHOUN CITY, Miss. (WCBI) - A text message sent to the wrong number lands three behind bars in Calhoun City.

23 year old Danielle Gray of Bruce, 30 year old Ira Holmes of Houston and 27 year old Talkela Moore also of Houston are charged with conspiracy to sell and child endangerment.

Sheriff Greg Pollan says they received a call from a woman Thursday saying she was getting text messages from an unknown number trying to sell her drugs.

Authorities set up to meet with the dealers over the woman’s phone. Deputies and the Calhoun City police hid near the meeting place and took the sellers down when they approached the car.

There was a 4 month year old child in the back seat.

The sheriff says charges can be enhanced because they also found a 9 millimeter pistol in the car.
