Officials in US ask drug dealers to turn in their rivals
Aug. 04, 2015
FRANKFORT, Kentucky (AP) — A sheriff's office in the United States has posted a flyer on its Facebook page asking drug dealers to turn in their rivals.
Media outlets report the Sheriff's Office in Franklin County, Kentucky, posted the flyer Monday. It features an image of a marijuana leaf and says, "Is your drug dealing competition costing you money? We offer a free service to help you eliminate your drug competition!"
Sheriff Pat Melton says the post is funny, but authorities are not joking around.
At the bottom of the letter, people are asked to fill out information about the drug dealer they are reporting, including the dealer's name and vehicle.
Melton says he got the idea from a sheriff's office in neighboring Georgia.
