'Awesome' police tweet gets mechanic in search of weed fired

Toronto police decided to tweet back to acknowledge they saw the post

By PoliceOne Staff

TORONTO — A mechanic was fired after his Tweet requesting a dealer to deliver marijuana to the body shop where he worked was noticed by police.

The man, posting under the username Sunith Baheerathan, wrote the message "Any dealers in Vaughan wanna make a 20sac chop? Come to Keele/Langstaff Mr. Lube, need a spliff or two to help me last this open to close,” on his Twitter account, according to CBC News.

The York Regional Police replied to the post with “Awesome! Can we come too?” The humorous response has received more than 5,700 retweets.

The body shop manager confirmed that the employee had been fired, but did not comment further. The shop’s account tweeted,“Thank you to the York Regional Police for your help and great work. The matter has now been handled,” Tuesday night.
