Usually, drug dealers try to operate in manner that their moves will not be detected by police. The proprietors of a West Virginia trap house thought they were doing just that, when a sign was hung on the front door warning snitches not to enter. The bright pink sign read:
Due to snitches everyone entering my home is subject to being searched. All cell phones and drinks will be left outside!! (If you’re not a snitch, it won’t offend you if I search you!)
Surely, everyone who came through to the spot in Oak Hill, WV, knew the deal. Unfortunately, so did the police, who came to the residence in response to a joyriding complaint. The sign made them suspicious that the house was a hub of illegal activity. “In addition to conducting their investigation into the joyriding complaint, deputies questioned the occupants about drug sales and obtained consent to search the residence,” reads the Facebook page of the Fayette County Sheriff’s Department. “This search resulted in the seizure of quantities of both heroin and methamphetamine, as well as various other unknown substances that were believed to be narcotics.”
According to Yahoo News:
