PORT ST. LUCIE, Fla., July 2 (UPI) -- Police in Florida said a woman arrested after conducting a drug deal with an undercover officer told them she got her cash from "the tooth fairy."

Port St. Lucie police Sgt. Robert Fonteyn said Kathryn Hudson, 22, was arrested Tuesday after selling a bag of oxycodone pills to an undercover officer and police seized $1,300 of money suspected to have been used for illegal drug activity, the South Florida Sun-Sentinel reported Friday.

Fonteyn said officers asked Hudson, who sold the pills to the officer for $440, where she got the money and she said "the tooth fairy gave it to her."

He said Hudson was selling the pills from her own prescription. She was charged with felony counts including trafficking oxycodone, illegal use of a two-way communication device and possession of alprazolam.
