Po­lice ‘like’ the dope who of­fered coke on Face­book


Midweek Sport - - NEWS -

A DOPEY drug dealer is be­ing hunted by po­lice af­ter up­dat­ing his Face­book sta­tus with an ill-ad­vised ad­vert for CO­CAINE!

The man, from Worces­ter, posted a mes­sage on his wall on Sun­day night, stat­ing: “Any1 want a gram ov coke for 35 pound I need it gone xx.”

It was later deleted af­ter the man was warned by oth­ers not to advertise il­le­gal sub­stances on­line.

But nearly 2,000 peo­ple had ac­cess to the mes­sage and po­lice were alerted.

Sgt Sara Good­man of West Mer­cia Po­lice said: “I would wel­come drug deal­ers of­fer­ing to sup­ply drugs on Face­book as it clearly makes our job a lot eas­ier.

“Peo­ple clearly need to be re­minded that of­fer­ing to sup­ply drugs is an of­fence in it­self.”

“In re­la­tion to this par­tic­u­lar in­di­vid­ual we have al­ready made sig­nif­i­cant progress in our in­ves­ti­ga­tion and will be con­clud­ing this mat­ter quite soon.”

She added that de­tec­tives have al­ready made “sig­nif­i­cant progress” in track­ing down the man but no ar­rests have been made at this stage.

WORST thing about

be­ing a test tube baby is know­ing my dad was a w*nker!
