Stormie and Eric Howard advertised burned CDs and DVDs for sale on Craigslist, cops say.

A Phoenix couple arrested on Monday for trying to sell pirated movies and music advertised their illegal products on Craigslist, cops say.

That's gotta rank right up there with leaving your wallet at the scene of a crime.

Stormie and Eric Howard, who had just moved to Phoenix three months ago from Utah, placed the ad for burned CDs and DVDs, police allege in court records.

An Arizona Department of Public Safety detective who spotted the ad contacted representatives with the motion picture and music industry, who used a private investigator to set up a sting.

The married couple met the undercover dick at Fry's Electronics in Tempe and offered to sell $50 worth of music CDs, records state.

Cops then busted the pair, finding about a dozen burned CDs and DVDs in their car.

Stormie Howard "stated she knew it was illegal ... and claimed she was just the driver," the court records state. "She stated she told Eric she didn't want to do [it], but he reminded her they needed the money. She stated the $50 they were going to make was going to be for gas money for the car."

The DPS had the couple booked into jail on Monday.

Who would be stupid enough to buy burned CDs out of somebody's car? Not only that, offer them on the internet? This qualifies as the stupid criminal trick of the day. You gotta be stupid to think that somebody offering to buy them from you isn't a cop or a record or movie company. It's like they are trying to sell drugs.

Hey Sabrina-

I hope things are going better now for you and your family. I know about tough times, but it will get better. The past does not dictate the future- you will make it better.

Good luck.
