A Longview woman is accused of trying to sell drugs to a police officer by calling and texting his department-issued phone.

Warrenton police said it started at 3 p.m. Thursday when Officer Ray Ayers was going on duty for his patrol shift.

Ayers said he turned on his police phone and immediate received notifications of a text message and voicemail. The messages were from "Diana" offering "stuff," including "blue 30 milligram."

Ayers wasn't sure if it was a joke, but he knew the reference to blue was for prescription medication oxycodone.

He replied to the text saying he was interested. Throughout his shift, they texted back and forth determining what kind of drugs were available, the cost and where to meet.

They eventually agreed to meet at the Warrenton Fred Meyer store, according to investigators.

At 2:45 a.m. Friday, Ayers and two Clatsop County deputies walked to the arranged location and met Diana Cochran, 48.

After a brief conversation with Cochran and confirming that it was Cochran's cell phone that Ayers had been communicating with, Cochran agreed to a consent search.

Investigators said Cochran was in possession of methamphetamine, marijuana, prescription drugs and various drug paraphernalia. She told the officer that she was given his cell number at a hotel by a man named Wayne and she thought she was conversing with Wayne.

Cochran now faces charges including attempted delivery of oxycodone and possession of meth.
