"narc" in English does not actually refer to a drug dealer/trafficker as stated in the WordReference dictionary, but rather the contrary (at least in the U.S.) it usually means a special agent or police officer specializing in narcotics. This could lead to problematic misunderstandings if translated incorrectly!
