Police arrested a Canadian man who handed out business cards with “free samples” of cocaine attached.
Pictured is one of the business cards with a dime bag of powder cocaine stapled to the back.
Police say aspiring drug dealer Alex Lee handed out his business cards at a local casino.
One of the business cards caught the attention of police.
Officers patrolling a downtown Calgary casino in December became aware of a man handing out free cocaine samples to gamblers.
The business cards listed a number where the gamblers could “re-up.”
Police say he handed out over 50 business cards with dime bags of cocaine attached.
The search was on for the suspect, but he managed to elude police for six weeks.
Investigators searched for the suspect throughout January, and eventually identified him through his vehicle.
On Saturday, police pulled over a 2020 Toyota Tundra, and arrested the driver. Officers searched the truck and later searched a home on Beaconsfield Place N.W.
Police seized almost 60 grams of rock cocaine portioned into baggies. Police also seized a digital scale, $1,280 in cash and a half empty box of “Alex Lee” business cards.
Lee, whose real name is Seyyed Amir Razavi, 30, was charged with two counts of drug trafficking, and possession of drug proceeds under $5,000.
He was released from custody and is scheduled to return to court on February 26.
