PROVO, Utah, July 2 (UPI) -- Next time it might be wise to go with a gift certificate or a nice card.

A Utah woman was arrested by Provo police after she allegedly attempted to purchase methamphetamine from an off-duty police officer.

During the attempt, Heather Rodriguez allegedly pulled a glass pipe that was coated with meth residue from her brassiere.

When officers who were on the clock arrived, the 46-year-old allegedly told police that she was trying to buy meth for her sister for her birthday because she requested the illegal substance as a gift.

The suspect also said that she was holding the meth pipe for a friend and it didn't belong to her, the Daily Herald reported.

Rodriguez was booked on suspicion of possession of drug paraphernalia in a drug-free zone and attempted possession of meth for distribution.
