A would-be purveyor of marijuana has attracted the attention of police after posting an ad for their wares on Facebook.

Suðurnes Police posted a status on the state of “the worldwide web”, as they put it, which they say can be “hazardous”. To demonstrate, they posted a censored screenshot of a post made in the Facebook group Keflavík of Keflavíkingar.

The post in question, made with a fake profile under the name “Mr. Keflavík”, advertises indica, a strain of marijuana. Mr. Keflavík included going prices for different quantities, a phone number, and the caveat that he is “often traveling around Reykjavík.”

As the Facebook group in question is intended for Keflavík natives at home and abroad, the police have concluded that the post was likely made in the wrong group.

“This is not good for him, but very good for us,” the police write, adding that they are currently trying to locate Mr. Keflavík. They added a warning for parents to make sure their children are not adding friends that they do not know, or who are clearly using a false name.
