Craig's List Pot Arrest

Nevada County Sheriff’s drug task force members nabbed 54 year old Ronald Hanson Wednesday after Hanson listed marijuana for sale on craigslist. Undercover officers contacted Hanson and arranged a meeting with him according to Sgt. Hap Penaluna.

“Mr. Hansen appeared to show up at the location that they determined. They confirmed that it was him. There was a small transaction to confirm that the marijuana was, in fact, in the vehicle and that there was a deal to be made.”

The value of the marijuana was listed at $300. Hanson was arrested without incident and booked into the Wayne Brown Correctional Facility on charges of possession of marijuana and marijuana for sale.
