"Attention Drug Dealers" Flyer Combats Addiction

Updated:

SEAFORD, Del. - Sussex County community leaders are getting creative in the fight against drugs and addiction. 

"Attention Drug Dealers," the flyer reads on the top. "Are you losing money because your competition is cutting into your profits? We offer a free service to help you eliminate your competition." 

The flyer, which was originally created as a joke, has morphed into an actual attempt to curb drug dealing, by the Sussex County Action Prevention Coalition. 

The flyer continues on to ask for the name, address, and number of the "Drug Dealing Competition." It also asks the writer to fill in where the selling is taking place, and between what times.

Chairman of SCAPC Jim Martin created the form, and said their message to drug dealers is clear. 

"You're not welcome in our community," he said. 

Martin, who has faced addiction first hand, told WBOC that the problem is growing in the county, as with the country as a whole. He said this flyer is just one of many things SCAPC has been doing to combat this epidemic. 

"We're going to try and attack both things at the same time," he said. "Demand and supply. So you know - demand has it's own set of problems. But supply. We can do something simple like a form like this." 

At the bottom of the flyer, contact information is provided for the Seaford Police Department. To reach the SPD, you can call (302) 629-6644, or visit the department at 300 Virginia Ave.
