Fake Crack Sold To Nursing Home Residents - Man Arrested

I used to think there was an upper age limit for some drugs, apparently not.

A 22-year-old was arrested on Thursday after phony crack cocaine was sold to residents at a Jacksonville nursing home.

Police arrested Hillmon Arnold outside the Golden Retreat Shelter Care Center at Moncrief Road and Golfair Boulevard, according to his arrest report.

Police interviews showed that a man was selling small pieces of bread that looked like crack cocaine in Tylenol pill bottles to the clients at the center for $5, the report said.

The center was targeted because residents receive their checks the 10th of the month and he needed money to support his own drug habit, the report said.
