CHARLTON, Mass. (AP) — Authorities in a 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.
The Franklin County Sheriff’s Office in Kentucky has a similar Facebook posting featuring an image of a marijuana leaf, and officials say they got the idea from the McIntosh County Sheriff’s Office in Georgia.
