Cops: Dealer Handed Out Coke Samples

Baggie of drug stapled to suspect's business card

FEBRUARY 7--In an apparent bid to drum up customers for his drug business, a Canadian man handed out business cards with a small sample of cocaine attached, police allege.

According to cops, Seyyed Amir Razavi, 30, distributed the cards outside a casino in Calgary (where Razavi resides).

Investigators learned of the cards in late-December and launched a probe that resulted in the February 3 arrest of Razavi on narcotics possession and trafficking charges.

A police search of Razavi’s auto and residence yielded 50 baggies of cocaine, a digital scale with drug residue, and $1280 in cash. Cops also seized a box of business cards with the name “Alex Lee.”

Razavi allegedly handed out the cards--which listed “Lee” as a “driver” and contained contact information--with a small Ziploc bag containing cocaine stapled to it (as seen in these evidence photos).

Razavi was released from custody earlier this week and is scheduled for a February 26 court appearance.
