An alleged drug dealer may have been trying to drum up business in the same way grocery stores have long promoted everything from snacks and spreads to artisan sausage — free samples.

Adam Wastson, 27, of the 4900 block of West Augusta Street, was arrested Tuesday afternoon after allegedly passing out heroin samples sealed in miniature baggies bearing Spider-Man's face to a group of people in West Humboldt Park, according to court records.

Canter, 55, allegedly ran when police showed up to the drug "pass-out" in the 1400 block of South Kildare Street, according to court records.
