STANLEY, Wis., May 13 (UPI) -- A Wisconsin teenager charged with four drug-related felonies allegedly sold Ecstasy tablets in the shapes of cartoon characters Homer Simpson and Papa Smurf.

Craig Gustafson, 16, of Stanley, who is scheduled to appear in a Clark County court for his initial appearance Wednesday, was charged with three counts of delivery of marijuana and one count of delivery of a controlled substance after he allegedly sold drugs to a buyer working with investigators, the Eau Claire (Wis.) Leader-Telegram reported Thursday.

The West Central Drug Task Force and Clark County Sheriff's Office said the buyer purchased marijuana and Ecstasy from the teenager March 29, April 20 and April 27. Gustafson allegedly sold the buyer 7.6 ounces of marijuana and 1 gram, or 20 pills, of Ecstasy.

The criminal complaint said Gustafson told officers after his April 27 arrest he knew selling the substances was illegal and "the only reason he did it was because he could not find a job."

Police said the Ecstasy tablets were shaped like Papa Smurf of "The Smurfs" and Homer Simpson of "The Simpsons."
