3 NJ women charged with selling Four Loko

Police in northern New Jersey say they've arrested three women for selling the alcohol energy drink Four Loko to undercover officers.

Mahwah detectives posing as college students responded to an advertisement on the Craigslist website. They set up a meeting Tuesday near the Ramapo College campus to purchase three cases of Four Loko for $335.

The women, ages 20 to 23, were charged with selling an alcoholic beverage without a state license. They were released pending a municipal court hearing.

Makers of Four Loko and similar drinks combining caffeine and alcohol stopped shipping their products late last year after the Food and Drug Administration sent them warning letters saying their drinks were unsafe.
