Errant text leads to arrest of drug suspects
PINE PLAINS, N.Y. (AP) - An errant text message is costing three New York drug-dealing suspects dearly.

Police say the suspects made a mistake when trying to text a potential buyer and instead reached a task force agent in Dutchess County, about 50 miles north of New York City.

The three were arrested after arranging a meeting with the agent, who pretended to be the buyer.

Police say they recovered 60 bags of heroin. Task force Sgt. Brett Orlich says, "Their bad luck is our good luck."
The three are due in town court in Pine Plains on Wednesday to face felony charges of criminal possession of a controlled substance.

Drunk seeks police help to exit bar
LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) - Drunk in a bar and can't get out, who you gonna call?

Police. That's what Todd Fitzwater did in Lexington. WLEX-TV reported that Fitzwater called 911 Thursday and said he'd gotten drunk and passed out at Todd's Karaoke Bar the night before, awakened and had a few more But then he found out he couldn't get out of the bar, which was closed.

Officers tapped on the door Thursday afternoon to guide the 45-year-old Fitzwater to it so he could let them in to help him.

Women bare their beliefs, doff tops
PORTLAND, Maine (AP) - About two dozen women drew a crowd of onlookers when they shed their shirts and marched downtown in Maine's largest city to promote what they call equal-opportunity public toplessness.

Organizer Ty MacDowell said the point of Saturday's march in Portland was that a topless woman out in public shouldn't attract any more attention than a man who walks around without a shirt.

The Portland Press Herald reports that by the end of the march, more than 500 people had amassed - a mix of marchers, young men snapping photos, oglers and people just out enjoying a sunny, warm day.

Snail-mail gaffe
PORT CLINTON, Ohio (AP) - Prosecutors say an Ohio inmate's letter to his mother included detailed instructions on how to sneak drugs to him - but lacked the correct ZIP code.

Ottawa County Sheriff Bob Bratton says the letter was returned to the Port Clinton jail where corrections officers read it along with the other incoming mail.

Donald Dudrow III of Toledo was indicted Thursday on charges of attempted drug trafficking and trying to get drugs into a correctional facility.
