Business cards lead to cocaine charges
LEAVENWORTH, Kan. (AP) -- The business cards got a response, but surely not what their owner had in mind when he had them printed up.
Police said they heard Sylvester J. Williams, 21, of Leavenworth, was selling drugs. Then, they got an unexpected tip.
"Then we heard that he was handing out business cards," Maj. Patrick Kitchens said. "In the course of our investigation we were fortunate to come up with one, and we gave him a call."
Kitchens said the business card had an image of what appeared to be an alarm clock being hit by a boxing glove and said: "For a quick hit on time call the boss."
Williams was charged Monday with possessing crack cocaine with the intent to sell it, said Kitchens. He was in custody Wednesday on $75,000 bond.
"It makes our job considerably easier when they advertise and let us know where to get ahold of them," Kitchens said.
