The Albuquerque Police Department has turned to the want ads for snitches.

An ad this week in the alternative newspaper The Alibi asks “people who hang out with crooks” to do part-time work for the police.

It reads in part: “Make some extra cash! Drug use and criminal record OK.”

Capt. Joe Hudson says police received more than 30 responses in two days. He says one tip was a “big one” but wouldn’t elaborate.

An informant whose tip helps officers arrest a drug dealer could earn $50. A tip about a murder suspect could bring up to $700.

It’s not the first time department has run ads. In a program 10 years ago, police received so many calls they turned the phones off.
