Craigslist Crimes and Misdemeanors
On October 11, 2011, police in Roswell, NM., arrested 29-year-old Anamicka Dave after reading an ad she posted on Craigslist. In the ad, Dave allegedly wrote that she was "new to town" and "looking for Mary Jane." According to a police spokesman, the officer who stumbled across the ad while browsing the web off-duty was so stunned, he first thought it may have been another department conducting a sting operation. The officer, posing as a seller, exchanged information with Dave via text message and met her in a parking lot, where she was arrested. She was charged with one felony count of criminal solicitation of marijuana and released on a $5,000 bond.
