(Scroll down for video) A drug dealer who was looking for new clients, made it easy for police to catch him.

The man of Clover, South Carolina, was arrested Wednesday, after investigators saw an online ad of a man who said that he was selling marijuana.

27-year-old James Kinley III, 27, posted the ad on Craigslist titled “Pot… I sell weed $200.”

The advertisement had his details about prices, the places where he sells the drugs and his phone number.

An officer of the York County’s Multi-jurisdictional Drug Enforcement Unit, who was looking for vehicles on the website, came across the ad.

The officer called Kinley, and they set up a place to meet. When Kinley arrived at the meeting place to sell the agent a half ounce of marijuana, he was taken into custody.
