This means to snitch on someone or to turn them in. Back when phone calls were only a dime, people would DROP A DIME into the pay phone, possibly anonymously to police. Thus Dropping Dimes got someone arrested or snitched on.
Some one was dropping dimes on me and the police picked me up. I think it was that snitch Jimmy!
