You’ve got to hand it to this guy for pure genius. I mean, all he did was take the basic economic principle of supple and demand to the next level. There was a clear demand for crack in a house full of addicts, and so he supplied the goods. Here’s The Man’s take on things:
Norwich police have arrested a man accused of running a crack cocaine operation out of a sober house.
Police said they received several tips that Khalil Hipps, 31, of Norwich, was running a drug operation out of the Liberty House, a transitional sober house on Washington Street, and selling drugs on the street.
I will say this wasn’t the greatest of choice for covers. I mean, no one can spot a drug dealer faster than an addict… and if they’re serious about their recovery, the first thing to do is turn them in.
