PORTAGE COUNTY, OH (WOIO) - A 16-year old high school student has been busted for selling pot.

According to police the teen thought he was texting a client but he inadvertently texted Portage County Dare Officer Kari Scherer, attempting to sell the officer marijuana.

After receiving numerous text messages from the juvenile, Officer Scherer, who is assigned to the Portage County Schools to discourage drug use among teenagers, made contact with the Portage County Drug Task Force where an investigation was opened.

The two eventually met up on Saxe Road and after a brief conversation with the juvenile, the undercover agent discovered that the juvenile was trying to sell counterfeit marijuana.

The teen was then taken into custody by Drug Task Force Agents.

He has been charged with Delinquency and is being held at the Portage County Juvenile Detention Center.
