Drugs make you stupid. They also contribute to bad decision making.
(Suspect), 34, of Klondyke Avenue, was charged Tuesday with possession with intent to manufacture, sell and deliver cocaine, carrying a concealed gun, possession of a firearm by a felon, resisting public officers, littering and possession of drug paraphernalia
Drugs cost money, but they also make it hard to hold down a normal job. That puts druggies in a bind. They can’t earn enough to pay for their drugs because the drugs make it impossible to hold down a job paying enough to cover the costs of the drugs. So they steal, scam, rob, or try to sell drugs themselves.
It looks like this guy spent a lot of time committing financial crimes. Read that list of convictions again. Every one of them has a victim bilked out of their hard earned dollars.
