WARR ACRES, Okla.- Police in one Oklahoma city said they want citizens to know they are cracking down on drug use in their town.

On Friday, officers arrested a Warr Acres resident for allegedly running a drug house. Warr Acres is about 10 miles outside of Oklahoma City.

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