WINSLOW, Maine — A Maine police department is offering drug dealers a free service to get their competition off the streets.

The Kennebec Journal reports the Winslow Police Department posted a flier on its Facebook page Monday afternoon encouraging drug dealers to fill out a form detailing the names, addresses and cellphone numbers of their competitors.

The flier also asks them to list where and to whom their competitors sell and who their supplier is.

In bold red letters, the flier begins, “Attention Drug Dealers.” It continues: “Is your competition costing you customers, and MONEY?”

The flier says, “We’re here to help!”

Winslow Police Chief Shawn O’Leary acknowledges the posting was made tongue-in-cheek but says he’s hopeful it could lead to good police tips.
