This right here is going to be a costly mistake for a local "alleged" drug dealer. Richard J. Betters Jr. meant to send a text to someone he was trying to make a drug deal with, instead, he sent a text message to Rotterdam police.

According to Daily Gazette :

A Schenectady man apparently got his phone numbers mixed up and it helped get him arrested, police said.


Betters’ mugshot released by police showed facial injuries. The injuries were present when police encountered him, Male said.

This could've been avoiding by simply calling instead of texting. Richard J. Betters Jr, you have to do better.
