A Chicago area man made two sales last December. One was legal. The other definitely was not.
Selling an Ernie Banks rookie card is no crime in Chicago. There are plenty of buyers.
Unfortunately there are also enough buyers for cocaine.
Back in December, one suburban Chicago man sold a small amount of the drug to someone who had absolutely no plans to use it. In addition to making an arrest, the undercover cop on the receiving end was also ready to confiscate the $1500 he found in the seller’s pocket. Drug money right?
Reporter Tony Gordon at the Arlington Daily-Herald has the story of a drug salesman who proved he did have other means of raising money–even if it meant parting with an icon.
