The officer was part of a sting operation launched against the women after police discovered a suspicious online ad they believed to hold coded language for drug dealing. 

Karakostas sold almost 70 grams of cocaine from February 2 to March 10, with many of the sales made through online classified site Craigslist.

The estate agent was arrested at her Mount Waverley office, in eastern Melbourne, on March 15, where officers found six grams of cocaine.

Police also found more than $3,000 cash, drug paraphernalia and records of future drug transactions.

When officers later raided Karakostas' home they discovered another 20 grams of cocaine and 250gm of another drug known as ethylpentylonane and other drug paraphernalia.

Tripos was intercepted by police driving with $3,000. Officers then raided her home and found cocaine, cocaine purity testing kits and an additional $3,500.
