Police in Kentucky, came up with a unique way to catch drug dealers by using their competition to rat them out.
The Franklin County Sheriff’s Office has published flyers, asking drug dealers to report their rivals.
Police posted the notice on its Facebook page. The notice tells drug dealers that police will work with them to destroy their competition.
The flyers features an image of a marijuana leaf and reads: “Is your drug dealing competition costing you money? We offer a free service to help you eliminate your drug competition!”
Pat Melton of the Franklin County Sheriff’s Office, said that the flyer is funny, but the department is not kidding.
At the bottom of the flyer, people are asked to complete the information on the drug dealer such as their address, phone number, vehicle the dealer is driving and the hours of operation.
The post has been shared more the 2,450 times.
In a Facebook comment, police wrote: “Ludacris you say? Arrests have been made as a result of information received.”
