Police are getting increasingly lazy when it comes to catching criminals

Police in America have turned to Facebook to catch criminals - by posting this message for drug dealers on their page.

Officers in Charlton, Massachusetts, say the tongue-in-cheek form was mostly posted for entertainment but they would be happy to pursue any leads.

AP notes that other police forces have also used the idea. The Franklin County Sheriff's Office has a similar post.

Charlton officials, meanwhile, said the idea was from the McIntosh County Sheriff's Office in Georgia.
