ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — 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.
