What to do if you suspect illegal activity?

Postby barnett » Thu Mar 01, 2012 9:02 am

If you happen to suspect drug dealing going on at or near a particular establishment you occupy frequently (like outside Wal Mart or near a fast food joint), and you do not report it to the police or any other law enforcement agency, are there any legal negative repercussions for you?

I'm not really sure on this one. I'm interested. Does anybody know? Thanks!

I don't think there would be any legal issues on your part, unless you were part of the drug deal. If you were driving by in your car, and you just kept driving but noticed then deal, then you would not be connected to the case (Though you might get questioned by the police if it was a major deal.. they would just want your viewpoint).

If you were driving/walking by the deal and stopped to talk to them (No matter what you said.. whether you were trying to stop them or whatever), then you would probably have a problem on your hands.

Well I don't think there is legally but I'm sure it would be looked down upon.

Just report to crime stoppers let them check it out collect the money.

If you just suspect it? No.

Participate, witness, maybe, but not suspect.

Unless you have an active responsibility for the location, for example, being a security guard, a teacher, or other responsible party.
