A Russian policewoman was arrested in Saint Petersburg on Monday attempting to sell a synthetic drug popular with addicts and party-goers, authorities said.

"Yana Frolova, aged 21, attempted, with the help of a 32-year-old man to sell more than two kilos of natrium oxybutyricum for 10,000 rubles (250 euros/330 dollars)," said local prosecutors.

The substance, generally known as sodium oxybate or GHB, is considered a "club drug" popular with young party-goers.

Russia's police force is plagued by corruption and scandals are common, despite a pledged crackdown by President Dmitry Medvedev.
