Sometimes a salesman has to be proactive in pitching his wares even when they are of the illegal kind. That's what happened to a man Saturday who made the mistake of flagging down a pair of police officers driving by to see what kind of drugs they might be in the market for.

The man wasn't completely incompetent as the officers were patrolling the area of 600 West and 100 South in an unmarked police car around 1 a.m on Sept. 21.

According to the Salt Lake City Police Department the man flagged the passing vehicle, approached and asked the two uniformed officers what they wanted. When one officer asked if the man had a particular drug, the suspect came closer to the vehicle and suddenly had a moment of seller's regret and fled from officers.

He was later taken into custody and found to be in possession of heroine and cocaine and was charged with distribution of a controlled substance and failing to stop at the command of an officer.

If you see any drug dealers in your neighborhood with the same go-get 'em entrepreneurial spirit or any other criminal activity the Salt Lake City Police Department encourages you to contact them at 801-799-3000. Tips can also be texted anonymously to 274637 using the keyword “TIPSLCPD.”
