A worker for the city of Orange saw something unusual for sale on Craigslist and contacted the Fullerton Police Department.

The item: a Fullerton Police Department badge.

But, after arranging a buy, cops got more than their hardware back.

They got burglary tools, a meth pipe, a big-screen television and two runaway teen girls.

Damn, sounds like a party at Charlie Sheen's!

After responding to the Craigslist ad, the buy was arranged Monday night at East Orangethorpe Avenue and South Placentia Avenue in Placentia, where undercover officers determined the badge the girls hawked had not been worn by Fullerton cops but dispatchers.

Breaking up, the cops followed the girls, ages 16 and 17, to an address where they found the goods that included the big-screen TV stolen from an Anaheim Holiday Inn.

The girls were sent to juvie.
