3 NJ women charged with selling Four Loko beverage

    It seems there’s still a market for the caffeine-spiked alcoholic drink Four Loko.

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

    The Record of Woodland Park reports that 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.
