If you believe that you just observed a drug deal, call the police. Try and write down a good description of the people and any vehicles involved. Try and write down license plate numbers when you can. If you call 911, try and be as detailed as you can with the dispatcher. The information you provide may help police establish "probable cause" in the investigation process.
