Australian man allegedly tried to use emojis to complete a drug deal
According to Mashable, Regan Peter Howett, 19 of Queensland has been accused of dealing drugs and using emojis to hide his transactions. The Brisbrane Times states that he was using "lightning bolts and hearts" emojis to help signify drugs like MDMA and ecstasy.
Howett was charged with 26 counts of supplying a dangerous drug and trafficking. While in court on Saturday, the police said they had downloaded his text messages after he was arrested. Sergeant Shane Turner said, "It will be alleged he used these phones to conduct the business of trafficking drugs."
It is hard to say whether or not he will be found guilty when his trial begins in August, but one thing is for certain, emojis should only be used in the best of circumstances. Like when there is no line at your local ice cream parlor.
