    Last year a local LCO went out of buisness, well actually I knew he got busted for drugs and the DEA took all his equipment. The story came out today in the local paper. He was one of a few big time operators here it seems...........oh well I picked up alot of his mowing accounts

    I don't get it. He was a big time drug dealer and he was slinging millions of dollars worth of the white powder, shedevil, maryjane, chronic, MJ, powder puff etc and found the time to mow a few yards in the interim of transporting???

    And you stated "things finally go your way"....did you drop the quarter on him? I am lost.....plz. This is definetly interesting.

    No I didnt have any idea he was a dealer, I knew he had alot of pretty toys to mow with. The lco wasnt the king pin, but he is named on that page near the top. He used the mowing route to deal the drugs also. I ended up with about 8 yards with in my normal route which gave me about another days full work.

    I'm a little confused myself, I read the entire article and I didn't see a thing about lawn or yard care, neither equipment nor any such operation was mentioned.

    Sounds like you were in the right place at the right time!!! Good for you.

    Those 'pretty toys' might be worth bidding on at a police auction, could be some bargains.
