Mobile Alabama police want text messages about meth

Mobile, Alabama residents can now text message tips to law enforcement officials, if they suspect anyone is using, selling, or manufacturing methamphetamine.

Beginning Thursday, May 29, 2008, people who observe suspicious activity are encouraged to text the word Meth to 839863 (“TextMe”). The message sender will then receive a reply back, requesting information about whether they are reporting a deal, a meth lab, or someone purchasing meth ingredients. A follow question requesting the location of the crime will also be asked of the sender. Law enforcement says the sender’s information will remain anonymous.
