LAS VEGAS (KLAS) — Metro police who work in the Las Vegas Convention Center Area Command and cover the Las Vegas Strip are posting their crime fighting work on social media.

Their twitter handle is @LVMPDCCAC and the posts feature what happens during particular shifts and some of the interesting items police seize.

Police even put together some videos. One shows the arrest of a man who was allegedly doing a drug transaction on the Strip. Police said the man was taken into custody after a search of his trunk turned up some guns, cash and drugs.

The posts even cover some of the unusual things that officers come across while working on and near the Las Vegas Strip.
