Like grandfather, like grandson. It must run in the family here, but two relatives are going to prison for apparently flipping heroin on the streets in order to make a little extra cash. Authorities in Pittsburgh say that Albert Martin and his grandson Troy are guilty of trying to sell $12,000 worth of the drug on the streets. Albert is 73 and his grandson is 20.
The police say that the grandfather and grandson are both going to face charges related to drug distribution. Plainclothes officers made the bust after a three month investigation that came from complaints from neighbors. They were finally able to secure their search warrants and go in for the arrest.
The SWAT Team busted in on the alleged family business at 6 am in order to surprise the grandfather and grandson. Police allegedly found 24 bricks of heroin and another $1,000 worth of cocaine. They also found cash and guns in the home as well.
