A Clover, South Carolina man was arrested on Wednesday after police saw his Craigslist ad offering to sell weed.
According to local drug enforcement officers, James Kinley III, posted a Craigslist ad titled “Pot… I SELL WEED - $200.”
The text of the ad:
Whole zip lock bag of Loud Smoke
Half an bag is $100
1/4 of a bag is $50
I got it
The ad included his PICTURE and PHONE NUMBER.
A police officer texted the number asking if the ad was real. The would-be dealer reportedly called the officer back, asked what he needed, and arranged a meeting.
Kinley arrived at the specified meeting place to sell the officer a half ounce of weed and was promptly taken into custody.
It’s not clear whether the man thought weed was legal in South Carolina (it’s not), or if he thought that cops don’t have access to Craigslist (they do), but it’s likely that Mr. Kinley broke the cardinal rule of drug dealing: getting high on your own supply.
