A 33-year-old woman was charged Monday with trying to trade an undercover police officer $2 and a box of salad from the Salt Lake City Olive Garden for $10 worth of cocaine.

On April 28, the woman told the undercover officer, outside the restaurant near 200 South and 300 West, that she would also return later with more money or Olive Garden gift cards in exchange for the cocaine, charging documents state.

Police arrested the woman and found a glass pipe in her jacket pocket inside a cigarette pack.

She is charged in 3rd District Court with attempted possession or use of a controlled substance, a third degree felony, and possession of drug paraphernalia, a class A misdemeanor.
