Two New Jersey men were charged with Neglect of the Elderly, along with various other drug charges. The police believe that Clinton McComb brought his mother along for a distraction, hoping that no one would suspect he was dealing heroin.
Officers had obtained information, leading to McComb before they observed him making a drug deal. His mother sat in the front seat, but the officers do not think she knew what her son was doing.
Officers followed the two men, pulling them over while McComb’s mother was still in the car. The men had 59 bags of heroin and $218 cash.
They were charged with possession of heroin, distribution of heroin, possession of heroin with the intent to distribute, possession of heroin within 500 feet of a park and 1,000 feet of a school, and conspiracy to violate narcotics laws.
According to police, the 89-year-old woman seemed disoriented and unaware of what was going on. She was returned home, into her daughter’s care. Read the full story here .
