Someone I once knew use to joke around (each time the ice-cream truck passed by) that it was the “pot truck” and that it was merely, a little known fact, I apparently never knew, nor did I want to believe. But, apparently there seems to be some “truth” to that, at least in Roosevelt.

According to reports a local Roosevelt ice cream parlor was selling crack alongside other sweets and treats it offered.

But, the owner of Santiago’s Ice Cream states that he was clueless as to the illegal activity that his counterman was engaging in.

Still, the discovery of this “covert operation” led to the arrest of 41 year of Benjamin Fitzgerald, who was charged with third-degree criminal possession of a controlled substance and third-degree criminal sale of a controlled substance.

Fitzgerald who sold the drugs at the ice cream parlor between November 22 and December 19, according to detectives, was scheduled to be arraigned in First District Court in Hempstead earlier this week.

Officers noted that during the specified period, they made several drug purchases from him and that upon his arrest found 25 individual bags of drugs in his possession.
