ROSWELL, N.M. -- A New Mexico woman faces charges after police say she put an ad on Craigslist looking to buy drugs.

Roswell police arrested Anamicka Dave, 29, this week after officers posing as sellers arranged to meet her through text messages.

Roswell Police Sgt. Ty Sharpe said the ad was so blatant, he had to make sure it wasn't posted by another undercover officer.

"I was really surprised that someone would actually put on there they were looking for weed – an actually illegal product – to the fact that I called my boss to make sure it wasn't one of our guys trying to do a reverse sting," Sharpe told the station.

Police met the Albuquerque woman in a parking lot and then arrested her.

It was unclear if Dave had an attorney, and a message left at a phone listing for her wasn't immediately returned Wednesday.
