Two people were recently arrested after they tried to trade marijuana for a vehicle being sold on Craigslist by the sheriff in Colorado.

A 39-year-old man contacted Sheriff Jason Mikesell after the sheriff advertised his personal vehicle for sale on Craigslist.

Instead of paying money, the man offered four pounds of “homegrown black-market” marijuana in exchange for the vehicle.

Unaware he was talking to the sheriff, he even sent photos of the marijuana over text message. #BoldAF

After getting the offer, Sheriff Mikesell got the department involved.

Detectives went undercover to meet with the man and a woman, and the two attempted to trade the drugs for the vehicle.

Authorities arrested both of them and seized the marijuana from their vehicle.
