Drug House Sign (309/365)

“I've never had a problem with drugs.  I've had problems with the police.”

Keith Richards (English guitarist, singer-songwriter, record producer, best-selling author and a founding member of
The Rolling Stones. b1943)

TIME:  1:20 PM
PLACE:  4100 block of West Main St.
SUBJECT:  Drug house sign

This year, our city police department has begun to identify houses where drug suspects have been arrested and drugs were seized by placing signs in front of the properties.  The idea is to let the people in our community know what is going on in their neighborhoods.  While I was taking this photo, at least 3 cars slowed down to read the sign, then turned around via the side street where I was parked and drove off in the opposite direction from whence they came.  Hmmm, disappointed customers perhaps?
