Police offer to 'eliminate competition' for drug dealers

“Is your drug dealing competition costing you money?”

POLICE IN KENTUCKY are using a novel way to try to catch drug dealers.

The Franklin County Sheriff’s Office has posted a flyer to its Facebook page encouraging local drug dealers to rat out their competition.

It reads: “Is your drug dealing competition costing you money? We offer a free service to help you eliminate your drug competition!”

Please share!!!!!!! We need your help. Franklin County Sheriff Franklin County Sheriff

At the bottom of the letter, people are asked to fill out information about the drug dealer they are reporting, including their name and vehicle.

The post has been shared over 400 times.

Franklin County Sheriff Pat Melton said he got the idea from the McIntosh County Sheriff’s Office in Georgia.
