Man Brings His 89-Year-Old Mother on Drug Deals

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 .

I have been writing as long as I can remember, even carrying tattered notebooks with me through the streets and strip clubs of New Orleans, in the midst of my heroin addiction. I lived a life saturated in heroin until Hurricane Katrina struck New Orleans, leaving me to fend for myself, eventually facing my demons and coming face to face with my addiction. I have been clean for five years, and since then I have become a mother, graduated college, and started a writing career. I have a B.A. in Mass Media Communication, with a minor in Journalism. I have also written one published book, Through Both Hell and High Water: A Memoir of Addiction and Hurricane Katrina, which tells the story of those dark days I spent in New Orleans after the storm, battling with addiction amidst a natural disaster. I am the blogger and news curator for RecoveryNowTV, and I love sharing the stories of the world, as well as my own personal journey, with my readers. I hope that my words can touch others out there, struggling with addiction.
