WARR ACRES, OK (KFOR) -- Warr Acres police say they want citizens to know that they are cracking down on drug use in their town.

On Friday, officers arrested a Warr Acres resident for allegedly running a drug house.

Even though the alleged drug dealer was already off the streets, they say they wanted their presence to be felt by his customers.

Authorities decided to use a different technique to get their point across.

The department's message came in the form of a note.

"The dope man is out of business. If you have any questions contact Warr Acres Police 789-3329," it read.

Police say this type of criminal activity won't be tolerated in their community.
