July 25 (UPI) -- Police in Connecticut said two men were arrested for attempting to buy cocaine from an officer at a police station -- appropriately located on High Street

Hartford Police Department Deputy Chief Brian J. Foley posted a photo Monday to Twitter showing a portion of an "Unusual Occurrence Report" detailing an incident Sunday at a police station.


The report says an officer was walking to his personal vehicle after finishing his shift at about 2 a.m. when he was approached by two men who said they wanted to "buy coke."

The men asked the officer to sell them some cocaine, but said they needed to visit an ATM to get some cash.

The officer "pointed out that there was an ATM inside of the front lobby of the Police Department," the report states. "The suspects then went into the Police Department to retrieve $60 to pay the officer for cocaine."

"Once inside, [the officer] notified the Teleserve officer who assisted in arresting both suspects and tagged the $60 as evidence without incident," the report states.

The incident took place at a police station appropriately located on High Street in Hartford.


"And this happened," Foley tweeted.
