In New York City, you just never know who your neighborhood drug dealer might be. It’s tough making an honest living in the city that never sleeps, but some people will do just about anything to get by. This week, a Papa John’s delivery man was arrested for selling more than $40,000 in cocaine hidden in pizza boxes to undercover police officers he met near his home and outside the Brooklyn restaurant where he works.
Ramon Rodriguez, 45, was charged Wednesday with multiple counts of criminal sale of a controlled substance and one count of criminal possession of a controlled substance.
Prosecutors say Rodriguez allegedly sold cocaine to undercover officers 19 times since the fall of 2011, often dressed in his work clothes to blend in.
