A young Canadian mechanic has been fired after his attempt to procure marijuana on Twitter was spotted by police and retweeted.
Posting under the name Sunith Baheerathan, the Twitter user asked for a dealer to bring drugs to Mr Lube, the oil-change shop where he worked.
“Any dealers in Vaughan wanna make a 20sac chop? Come to Keele/Langstaff Mr. Lube, need a spliff,” he wrote.
Unfortunately for Baheerathan the York Regional Police, who cover the regional municipality in Southern Ontario, Canada, between Lake Simcoe and nearby Toronto, were monitoring the micro-blogging site and spotted the tweet.
The police then retweeted the request and adding: "Awesome! Can we come too?"
