The McDowell County Sheriff's Office said Deputy P.V. Alkire received a text message Thursday night from a number he did not recognize from a sender who identified herself as "Amy" and asked if he wanted "business tonight," The McDowell News, Marion, N.C., reported Wednesday.

The sender said she was selling "bones," a street term for the prescription anti-anxiety drug Xanax, and Alkire arranged to purchase 10 of the pills at Nebo Truck Stop.

The deputy arrived for the sale and found the car described by the seller. The passenger in the car, Amy Leigh Brown, 35, was arrested and charged with intent to sell and deliver a Schedule IV controlled substance.

Investigators said Brown was carrying 25 generic Xanax pills.
