New Mexico police: Woman dials wrong number, offers detective drugs
ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) – Police say a woman selling drugs made a big mistake that landed her in jail – she mistakenly called an Albuquerque police detective.
KOB-TV reports that 30-year-old Renea Lucero was arrested last week when she called the detective at his department-issued cellphone and made the officer an unexpected offer.
Court documents say the detective knew Lucero from a prior criminal case. But the report says he didn’t think Lucero realized who she had dialed.
The officer then set up a drug bust.
The detective says Lucero pulled the heroin out of her bra during a sting.
Lucero was arrested on trafficking charges.
It was not known if she had an attorney.
