Texting mistake leads to arrest
Tondavian Monquell Wilson has been arrested for possession with indent to distribute marijuana, possession with intent to distribute marijuana within proximity of a school/playground and possession of a firearm by a convicted felon, according to a release from the Chesterfield County Sheriff’s Office.
The release states the arrest stemmed from text messages and pictures of a gun and marijuana Wilson mistakenly sent to a deputy of the CCSO.
Deputies reportedly started a text dialogue with Wilson concerning prices for the firearm and the amount of requested marijuana through these texts.
Wilson gave a location in the town of Cheraw where he was working on a house.
Deputies arrived and found him at the specified residence.
Wilson was carrying a bag that contained in excess of 90 grams of marijuana and a pistol. He was arrested without incident and was “dumbfounded by his obvious texting mistake,” the release states.
The arrest occurred about 4:40 p.m. yesterday, May 9.
