If you are SURE and can base your suspicion on something VALID, call your local police department and ask to speak to a Detective. Tell them your facts and they will do the FINDING OUT when and where.

Why do YOU want to catch them? Not only is that dangerous, but it accomplishes nothing. If you suspect that kind of activity next door, you need to alert the police and let them do the "catching". Don't put yourself or your family in jeopardy.

Don't put yourself in danger by doing anything to catch them in the act. Notify the police of your suspicions and let them handle it. Keep yourself well out of it. It may take some time before the police can act but if your neighbors are selling out of their home, it will become clear to the police soon enough.

You should not get tangled up in that. Call your local police, ask for narcotics and tell them about it.

getting too involved and physically catching them in the act can be very dangerous and not smart.
You really dont know what your dealing with. Maybe it seems like they aren't that dangerous but if there is someone above them that will get violent if you get involved it will be very bad.
I suggest making a anon.. report to the police. Just like you did here on AO.
Let them do their job. If you just give a tip they will appreciate it and not get you involved. They wouldnt need you as a witness if they set up a sting.

Not sure how you catching them in the act is going to get them to stop. Seems to me it would be far wiser to either forget about it or tip off the police.

Are you sure you want to go that route? Do you have any idea what you could be messing with? Call the cops anonymously but don't get involved. You don't want drug dealers for enemies.

YOU don't unless you want to get shot or retaliated against.
[The question begs why you unless you want something.]
You can hide a few tiny surveillance cameras around your house outside to watch the goings on. Then if you see something, like quick traffic come/go patterns of shady folks, you turn the tapes or CD over to local drug cops aznd back away uninvolved.

Call the Cops Tell them the situation . They will protect u as they do not give this information out. The will more than likey do a setup situation where by survillance will also be involved.
U do not want to get involved directly with these kinda people or even attempt in anyway of going it alone. Say nothing to them and let the Cops do the job.

Turn your back and let them do what the do. I would not call the police because If an arrest is made on the dealers you will have to testafy agaainst the dealer in court and then he or she will know who put the finger on them.
