    An undercover drug bust has ended a two-person drug ring that offered prescription medication for sale on the Internet, according to police.

    Christopher Giles and Jasmine Alina Larochelle, both 29, and of Santa Rosa, were arrested in Novato on Wednesday, according to the Marin Independent Journal. They're free on bail while prosecutors mull charges.

    A tipster informed police that someone in the North Bay was offering drugs for sale via Craigslist, the newspaper reported. An undercover cop made an arrangement to buy $2,100 worth of OxyContin, Dilaudid, and Opana, the newspaper reported.

    After the buy at the Novato Fair Shopping Center, detectives arrested Giles and Larochelle, along with another 155 pills that had been ordered by others for sale, the newspaper reported.
