Some times making a little extra doe on Craigslist isn’t so wise.

Retired Border Patrol agent David Pietrantonio has been charged in San Diego with selling official equipment to undercover FBI agents, the Associated Press reported. He had pleaded not guilty on Wednesday.

AP reports that Pietrantonio tried to sell “a Border Patrol “Firearms Instructor” jacket, four uniform shirts and three uniform pants for $468. The jacket and shirts had patches in the shape of a badge.”

The wire service reported that FBI agents spotted the uniforms on the Craigslist Tijuana Web site and arranged to purchase them. He faces up to six months in prison if convicted.
