Craigslist Marijuana Ad Ends in Charges

An East Hartford woman arranged to buy marijuana on Craigslist and cops were waiting.

Using Craigslist to advertise that you’re looking for marijuana might be one way to find a seller quickly, but it’s also apparently a good way to tip off a narcotics task force.

Tara Mohan, 24, of East Hartford, placed an ad on Craigslist saying that she was looking to purchase marijuana, according to the East Central Narcotics Task Force, and arrangements were made to meet at Stop & Shop on Glastonbury Boulevard in Glastonbury on Wednesday.

When Mohan arrived, surveillance units were already there, waiting and took Mohan into custody, along with Thomas Roth, 24, who lives with Mohan.

Both were charged with conspiracy/possession of more than half an ounce of marijuana.
