Click Here for Stupid: Two Guys Arrested for Trying to Trade iPod Touch and Some Marijuana for an iPad Online


For those who like the saying, “You can get anything on the Internet” a Craiglist post from Arizona last week proves that to not always be the case. For instance, you can’t get an iPad by offering to trade your iPod touch and 7 grams of marijuana. But you can get arrested.

That’s what happened to two dudes from Gilbert, Arizona last week (we’ve been kind and only posted the mug shot of one of them here). After posting an ad on Craigslist offering the iPod Touch and pot in exchange for an iPad, police officers posing as idiots interested in the offer got in touch. When suspect one went to accept the iPad in exchange for the dope – busted! Suspect two was charged with being equally stupid and both now face charges of “transportation and sale of marijuana.”

Kids, there are easier (and smarter) ways to get an iPad. Really.
