Mohave County Sheriff's officials made multiple arrests after a parolee reportedly texted the wrong number for a drug deal. 

Officials say Arizona Department of Corrections Parole officers contacted the local narcotics enforcement team after parolee Christopher Willmon reportedly texted one of their phones in an attempt to sell heroin. 

On Tuesday afternoon, Willmon arranged a heroin purchase and confirmed that he was at home. Officials found Willmon hiding in a shed with the heroin he was going to sell. 

MCSO says Willmon was "accidentally texting the wrong person".

Officials also found numerous other drug paraphernalia items related to meth sales on the property. The homeowner, Jon Dudek, admitted to officials that he had been selling meth for more than 50 years. 

Willmon, Dudek and five others were arrested on various felony and misdemeanor drug charges and warrants.
