Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- A 19-year-old was arrested after police say she accidentally sent a text message to a police officer, offering to sell him meth.

According to Fox 59, it happened in Johnson County, Indiana, which is just south of Indianapolis. 

Police say after Shelby Eicks sent the message, undercover detectives continued the conversation. They say they met the woman twice to buy meth and prescription pain pills. Eicks allegedly sold the detectives more than $700 worth of drugs. 

She was taken into custody during that second meeting and faces up to 30 years in prison.
