Vice/Narcotics detectives were contacted by Dale Eugene Dean, 42 of Callaway who wanted to report drug activity.
Dean gave names, dates, details and photographs related to the drug dealing he was reporting.
Detectives continued the investigation and determined the evidence provided by Dean was fabricated. Further, through the investigation it was found that the photos provided were taken inside Dean’s home. Suspect Dean had completed construction work for the person he identified as the drug dealer and wasn’t paid, which led to the false report.
Dean was arrested and charged accordingly.
Inquiries should be directed to Captain Daniel D. Alioto, Commander of Vice Narcotics, at 301-475-4200 x1918.
