BOYNTON BEACH, Fla. -- Police have arrested a 38-year-old woman after they said she asked them to help her find a hit man to kill her husband.

According to the Boynton Beach police, when Annybelkis Terrero met with the hit man on Thursday night, she gave him a shotgun and ammunition as a down payment. The hit man was actually an undercover Boynton Beach police officer.

Police said she also agreed to pay him a total of $30,000 from her husband's life insurance policy once he was dead.

Terrero, of Boynton Beach, was arrested and charged with two counts of solicitation of murder and two counts of bribery.

The investigation began several weeks ago when police responded to Terrero's home on Southwest Eighth Avenue due to neighbor complaints about drug activity and prostitution.

Police said Terrero met with officers and agreed to become a confidential informant.

On Wednesday, officers went back to her home to have her sign paperwork to become the informant. She then provided information about a drug dealer and agreed to show officers where she lives.

While en route to the location, police said Terrero told officers that she hated her husband and wanted him dead.

Officers, who were wearing tactical vests that identified them as police officers with the Boynton Beach Police Department, said they then implied that they knew someone who could help her commit the act.

Terrero is then accused of provided the two officers with stolen credit cards as a down payment and told them to use them quickly because they were "hot."

A meeting was set for around 7:45 p.m. Thursday in a shopping center parking lot at 501 S.E. 18th Ave.

Terrero is accused of bringing a fully-loaded Remington shotgun and ammunition to the meeting. Police said she offered it to the hit man, the undercover police officer, as a down payment and sign of good faith.

Terrero remains in custody at the Palm Beach County Jail.
