(Newser) – Bad news for anyone in Arizona who was looking to trade their iPad for a used iPod and some weed: The cops beat them to it. Entrepreneurial 20-year-old Arizonans Jacob Walker and Joseph Velarte, who offered an iPod and a quarter ounce on Craigslist in exchange for an iPad, complete with a picture of the available goods, got an eager response to the ad from the local police, who met up with Walker and arrested him, Gawker reports. In a further bummer, the cops did not give Walker an iPad.
