(Newser) – Pro tip: When looking for a hit man, don't ask cops to hook you up. A woman in Boynton Beach, Fla., has been arrested after police say she hired an undercover agent posing as a hit man to kill her husband and a friend, the Palm Beach Post reports. But the story, as the cops tell it, gets weirder: Annybelkis Terrero, 38, agreed to become a confidential police informant after officers came to her house investigating accusations of drugs and prostitution. She told the cops she'd show them where a drug dealer lived, but while driving there, two officers say she told them that she hated her husband and had a plan to kill him.

The cops—both wearing vests with "Police Agent" unmistakably printed across them—told Terrero they knew someone who could help. She allegedly gave them two stolen credit cards as a down payment. The next day, they took her to meet their "hit man"—actually an undercover officer. Terrero offered him a loaded shotgun as a sign of good faith, and allegedly promised $30,000 of her husband's life insurance money when he and another friend of hers were killed, reports NBC Miami. The next day, she was charged with solicitation and bribery. The friend she was trying to have killed says Terrero "has a severe drug and alcohol problem" and "psychological problems" and laughed off the news, reports the Post.

She's actually not a bad looking woman; too bad she couldn't walk out of that bad relationship, cleaned herself up and started a better life. Unfortunately, I assume it's simpler said than done.

As dumb as a box of rocks. Fortunately, people that dumb usually get caught.
