Men rounded up for attempting to purchase cocaine at a Police Station

HARTFORD, Conn. (AP)- Police have reported the capture of two men who attempted to purchase contraband drugs from a Connecticut police service unit.

According to Hartford Police, on Sunday, two men walked up to an officer who had just finished his shift and was approaching his vehicle then, they asked him to sell them cocaine. These men requested to use an ATM so they could get money to pay the officer for the drugs. The police officer willingly led them to a teller machine situated in the lobby of the station. Reports from the police stated that the two men approached the machine and withdrew $60 to purchase the drugs. While the two were in teller machine facility, the officer contacted the station for reinforcement, and on exiting the facility, police officers arrested the men.

Hartford Police has since refused to make their identities known but the $60 they offered the officer was received as evidence. The police report was issued by the department’s spokesman through their twitter handle on Monday.
