NEW ROCHELLE, NY -- Talk of the Sound first reported on the arrest of Humberto Agustin on July 27th. An updated story ran on July 30th. Yet go online and as of the publication of this article today the only mention of Humberto Agustin you will find are the previous stories on Talk of the Sound.

Why?

There are not too many First Degree Rape charges filed in Westchester County and even less involving a child. So, why the silent treatment on this story?

As reported by Mashable, the Franklin County (KY) Sheriff’s Office, inspired by an advertisement run in a local newspaper by the McIntosh County (GA) Office of the Sheriff, posted on Facebook about a new “free service” offered by local law enforcement to eliminate drug dealer’s competition.

In the spirit of supporting our own local law enforcement, Talk of the Sound has created our own unofficial version for the New Rochelle Police Department.
