SALT LAKE CITY — A Salt Lake City woman has been charged with a third degree felony for allegedly asking an undercover police officer to give her drugs in exchange for an Olive Garden salad in a to-go box.
The 33-year-old woman approached the undercover officer who was working on the corner of 200 South and 300 West in Salt Lake, according to charging documents. The woman was carrying a white food container and asked the undercover officer for $10 worth of cocaine, according to the charges. She "stated that she wanted some cocaine, but she only had $2 and a salad," the charges state.
She told the officer she would return later with more money or some Olive Garden gift cards, according to police.
When another officer searched the woman prior to her arrest, the officer found a glass pipe inside a cigarette pack in her pocket, according to the charges.
The woman was charged Monday in 3rd District Court with one count of attempted possession or use of a controlled substance, a third degree felony, and possession of drug paraphernalia, a class A misdemeanor.
