Police beseech public via Facebook to stop calling arrested dealer's phone

“First of all, he is all out of drugs for tonight. Secondly you don’t need to call – we will come to you soon enough,” reads a post on the department’s social media account. (Photo: Facebook)

Police in Alliance, Ohio outed a suspect in custody by posting an image of his phone to social media, open to a sketchy looking text message exchange.

In the post, made late Tuesday, they asked for the public’s assistance.

PLEASE STOP CALLING Steve Notman’s cell phone. He was arrested tonight by SIU detectives….again…. for ALLEGEDLY (on video) selling crystal meth here in Alliance. We have his phone and are trying to read all your texts requesting drugs and going through all of his contacts (with his permission) but you keep calling and texting and it’s really annoying. First of all, he is all out of drugs for tonight. Secondly you don’t need to call – we will come to you soon enough. Oh, and his ringtone is terrible! Thank you so much for your patience.

Guess Steve should’ve got an iPhone.
