A California senior living center’s parking lot has been the place to get illegal drugs for the last two years.

Amazingly, it was a resident who was supplementing his retirement pay by selling heroin and pot in the senior center’s parking lot.

But what is really amazing is that no one checked to see how many felonies he had committed before he moved in.

From KFSN Fresno CA:

Residents at a senior living center said they are relieved after the arrest of one of their neighbors. Investigators said the 68-year-old man was taken into custody for selling drugs in the parking lot.

One neighbor stated the suspect would make deals during the night, mostly to young women.

With a constant flow of traffic at their facility, residents said they complained to building management, but admit they were mostly ignored.

“I’m appalled this could happen where I live,” one resident said. “And to see this man doing this under our nose and think he could get away with it.”

Residents eventually alerted police to the situation and the man was found to be in possession of cocaine, heroin, and marijuana.

Authorities said he faces up to 14 felony charges.

Apparently, this is not his first brush with the law.  The accused has 14 felony convictions ranging from drug sales to having stolen property.

Someone didn’t vet Daniels thoroughly enough before allowing him to move into the senior citizen center.

From the East Bay Times:

A 14-time felon accused of using his senior citizens home as a base for selling narcotics is being prosecuted on four felony drug counts, according to court documents and authorities.

Landry Daniels, 68, was arrested June 21 and charged June 23 with two counts of possession for sale of a controlled substance and two counts of transportation of a controlled substance for sale.

He pleaded not guilty to the charges Wednesday and was told to appear Aug. 30 for a pre-trial hearing.  Daniels is currently free on $60,000 bail.

Daniels’ attorney did not return calls seeking comment.

According to court documents, on the day Daniels was arrested, police seized about $20,000 worth of cocaine, black tar heroin and marijuana from his vehicle and apartment in the 66-unit Glen Brook Terrace Satellite Senior Homes 4030 Panama Court where he lived at the time.

Police also seized $471 from Daniels they believe are proceeds from drug sales, according to court documents.

Daniels is accused of selling drugs to non-residents in the parking area of the senior home, and he would also make deliveries, authorities said.

He recently moved from the complex. A representative of the complex said in an email  earlier this week that  “Unfortunately we are unable to share any information at this time.”

Authorities began their investigation several weeks ago after receiving anonymous tips about Daniels.

According to the documents, undercover police officers saw him making suspected sales from his KIA SUV about 6:45 p.m. June 21 outside the apartment complex, which is near Piedmont Avenue.

The buyers were arrested and Daniels was stopped by police in the 4000 block of Emery Street in Emeryville, according to court records.

The SUV was searched, and in a leather bag in the center console, a plastic sandwich bag containing 14.1 grams of suspected cocaine and 5.6 grams of suspected black tar heroin was found, the documents state.

The cash was found in one of Daniels’ pants pockets.

A search warrant was served later at his apartment where 40 grams of suspected cocaine, 25.5 grams of suspected black tar heroin and 0.8 ounces of suspected marijuana were found, the documents say.

According to court documents, Daniels’ prior convictions are between 1978 and 2012.  They include convictions for drugs, burglary, petty theft with priors, and receiving stolen property. He received prison terms for nine of the convictions and was placed on probation for the others, including the most recent in August 2012 for burglary.
