A Wisconsin woman apparently underestimated the severity of selling drugs – even when they aren’t drugs.

22-year-old Megan Meyer crushed dog food and tried to pass it off to a man as heroin, claiming she needed to get rid of it because her probation officer was headed for her house.

She also tried to pass off aspirin as the prescription painkiller Percocet.

It turns out that the man she was trying to pass it all off to was an informant. He contacted authorities, then gave them the plastic bag with the substances inside.

She was arrested on a parole violation and other charges, but now faces two felony counts of imitation of a controlled substance and felony bail jumping.

If convicted, she faces up to six years in prison and a $10,000 fine.
