(Newser) – 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. (Also in Albuquerque, a little boy got hold of his mom's loaded handgun and managed to shoot both mom and dad with a single bullet.)
