    Sheriff's Ad: Cops Can Handle Drug Dealers' Competition For 'Free'

    A Georgia sheriff is hoping drug dealing "cutthroat" rivalries lead to arrests, NBC News reported.

    "They are cutthroats and they will turn on each other all the time," Country Sheriff Stephen Jessup said Friday.

    In a local ad put out by Jessup, it touts a "free service" to remove competition from drug dealing.

    "Is your drug dealing competition costing you money?" the advertisement reads. "We off a FREE service to help you eliminate your drug competition!"

    While no dealers have turned in any rivals yet, Jessup hopes this puts a dent in the small town's large drug problem: the 12,000 population garnered around 600 drug related arrests last year.
