    Stereotypical Crack Dealer Not

    Seventy-nine year old Charles Ritchie isn't your stereotypical crack dealer, but neighbors and police officers say he is all the same. Frightening too is the weapons he had in his place. I know our elderly are often forced to make ends meet, but this astonished me.http://www.capitalnews9.com/content/...sp?ArID=224901

    Bet he doesn't have Alzheimer's, Nappy. That's alot to keep track of. Drugs and guns and all. I wonder if he'll have to do time?

    Drug dealers usually wind up in jail or don't live long lives so that probably accounts for why we don't see to many elderly drug dealers..
    That being said ... I am guessing he has been a criminal his whole life.

    That dude is so old I don't think crack was around when he was a young man. No doubt though criminal behavior for life. Although I have personally seen old men like this who hook up with prostitutes that are drug addicted. The old guys got a pension and a house, and want a woman no matter the background, and poof ya got crack in some old guys house with a bunch of prostitutes running in and out. Neighbors don't take kindly to that I can tell ya. This guy was an opportunist it looks like.

    Excellent point Filly... I had not thought of that aspect of things..
    Although I don't think it applies to this man.

    Well Filly I think he isnt going to get out of jail time but I dont know how much time they will give him because of his age.

    Maybe he started moonshine back in prohibition.. in any case this is unheard of at his age.. i doubt he would do time due to his age. It's so sad that a senior citizen would turn to selling drugs to make ends meet, there's got to be better programs in place..
