MIAMI (AP) - The Miami Police Department encouraged residents to report gang activity _ with a website banner depicting two gangsters bearing a striking resemblance to rapper Jay-Z.

The graphic depicting the Jay-Z lookalikes and three other figures had been removed and was no longer on the website Friday.

The Miami New Times first blogged about the graphic Thursday on its website.

Police spokeswoman Kenia Reyes told The Associated Press on Friday that the drawing was inadvertently done. She would not say how long the graphic was on the website or provide details about how Jay-Z’s image ended up in the graphic.
