Sheriff's office asks drug dealers to turn in their rivals

FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) - A Kentucky sheriff's office has posted a flyer on its Facebook page asking drug dealers to turn in their rivals.

The Franklin County Sheriff's Office posted the flyer Monday afternoon. 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!"

Franklin County Sheriff Pat Melton says the post is funny, but the sheriff's department is 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 the McIntosh County Sheriff's Office in Georgia.

As of Tuesday morning, the post had 394 online shares.
