Police: Men arrested trying to buy drugs at police station

Posted: Updated:

HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) - Police say two men have been arrested after they tried to buy drugs from an officer at a Connecticut police station.

Hartford Police say an officer had finished his shift and was walking to his vehicle Sunday when two men approached and asked if he would sell them cocaine.

The two men said they needed to find an ATM to get cash, so the officer directed them to a machine inside the lobby of the police department.

Police said that while the men went inside to get $60 for drugs, the officer called for help and the men were arrested.

Hartford Police did not release their names. The $60 was taken as evidence.

A department spokesman posted the police report to Twitter on Monday, saying, "and this happened."

    Your health: Creepy clowns and coulrophobia

    Doctor Scott Bea says a fear of clowns is most likely due to the elusive nature of their appearance. Because clowns wear makeup and conceal their identity -- they can create uncertainty. He says it's similar to when children are terrified by mascots or characters with masks. Clowns used to be whimsical characters folks associated with the circus -- but over time -- depictions of clowns in movies and on television have associated them with more sinister things.
