(JOHNSON CO.) - A Johnson County woman was arrested after she accidentally sent a text message to a New Whiteland police officer, offering to sell him meth.

The police department contacted the Johnson County Sheriff's Office, which began an undercover drug instigation. Undercover detectives continued texting with the woman, identified as 19-year-old Shelby R. Eicks and began setting up a drug deal, according to court documents.

CBS4Indy reports detectives met with Eicks twice to buy methamphetamine and prescription pain pills.

The first meeting was on September 10. An undercover detective met with Eicks at a fast-food restaurant in New Whiteland to buy a half-ounce of methamphetamine for $575, court documents say. The two met again at a fast-food restaurant in Franklin on September 15, where Eicks allegedly agreed to sell the undercover detective 17 prescription pain pills for $135.

After the second meeting, Eicks was taken into custody and charged with dealing methamphetamine and dealing a controlled substance. She faces up to 30 years in prison.
