Police department reaching out to drug dealers on Facebook

Charlton P.D. encouraging dealers to let them "eliminate their competition"

Form posted on the Charlton Police Department's Facebook page asking drug dealers to inform them about their competition.

CHARLTON, Mass. (AP) — Authorities in a central Massachusetts town are reaching out to drug dealers who want to eliminate their competition.

The Charlton Police Department made a tongue-in-cheek post on their Facebook page Friday offering drug dealers the chance to provide information on their competitors.

It asks dealers to complete a fill-in-the-blank form that gives them the person’s name, address, phone number, what drugs they’re selling and where they are being sold.

Officer Richard McGrath says the post was meant to be entertaining, but says his officers would pursue any leads if a form was filled out.

McGrath told the Telegram & Gazette he found the form online and tailored it for Charlton police use.

The department so far has not received a filled-out questionnaire.
