Weed for SUV trade ends in arrests

Colorado man offered the pot as payment for the vehicle to the sheriff who received the service in question to make arrests.

Two people were arrested after they unwittingly offered to trade four pounds of “home grown ” black market” marijuana for a sheriff’s car on Craigslist, police said.

Shawn Langley, 39, and Jane Cravens were arrested when detectives nabbed them for attempting to trade drugs for the vehicle, KDVR reported.

The incident began when Teller County Sheriff Jason Mikesell listed his car for sale on Craigslist.

He was pinged an offer, but not of a sum of money he wanted. Instead, Langley offered “home grown ” black market” marijuana in exchange for the vehicle. The 39-year-old even texted photos of the drug to the sheriff.

Mikesell contacted the police and had two investigators at Langley.
