SYRACUSE, N.Y., Jan. 8 (UPI) -- A New York sheriff posted a message to local drug dealers encouraging them to turn their peers in to police.
Cayuga County Sheriff's Office posted a photo to Facebook urging drug dealers in the area to provide police with information about their competitors.
"Is your drug dealing competition costing you money?" the message from Sheriff Dave Gold states. "We offer a free service to help you eliminate your drug competition; report your competition to us!"
The post directs potential informants to the department's anonymous tip center and requests the address, phone number, vehicle and time of operation of competing drug dealers.
