MARATHON, Fla. (AP) - Authorities say a woman called a Monroe County Sheriff's deputy and offered to sell him drugs.
Sheriff's spokeswoman Becky Herrin says 39-year-old Jennifer Knopp told Deputy Christian Galls she "had the stuff he was looking for" during the Thursday night call. Herrin says Knopp had the deputy's phone number from a previous case he worked on.
Reports say Gall agreed to meet her at a movie theater. He arrived with another deputy and Knopp tried to drive away, but was stopped. She had 24.5 grams of marijuana in her purse.
Herrin says Knopp told Gall she called him because she hoped he could help her get away from a man who was in the car with her.
Knopp was charged with possession.
