Jackson, MS (WAPT/CNN) - Somewhere in Mississippi, a drug dealer is very angry that his car is now a police cruiser.

Officers seized s BMW 750 and outfitted it with police gear.

The $40,000 luxury car now sports police graphics including Jackson Police Department's drug hotline number.

The aim, according to the assistant police chief, is to send the right message.

"If you try to sell drugs in Jackson, we're going to catch you. Whatever profits you make, we're going to take them and pretty much encourage people not to get involved in the drug culture," said Lee Vance, Assistant Chief of the Jackson Police Department.

Police seized the car in January, along with $12,000.

Three men were also arrested.
