Grandfather Arrested For Allegedly Smuggling Drugs To Grandson in Jail

Previously, we saw a mother who was arrested smuggling drugs into a prison. Now we have Richard Heritz, 85, who was arrested for allegedly trying to smuggle marijuana into jail for his grandson.

As with the earlier case, police were given a tip of the alleged plan to smuggle the drugs. His grandson is incarcerated for burglary. Now his grandfather has a nearby cell after being found in possession of more than 20 grams of marijuana. The possible sentence is hefty — seven years if convicted of attempting to convey drugs at a detention facility and possessing criminal tools. He now faces up to 7 years in jail and a fine of up to $15,000.

If his grandson knew about this, it was lethal mistake. That could be a life sentence for an eighty-five-year-old man.

  1. Grandpa, tell me again about Bob Feller and the 1948 Cleveland Indians and how they beat the Boston Braves in the World Series–But first, let’s light one up.

  2. Just another sign that music has an adverse effect on youth. He was probably lead astray by this abomination:


  3. My grandfather swore that his Geritol made him feel so much better. Since it was 12% alcohol, I now believe him.


    ‘Why Our Grandparents Have Such Fond Memories Of Their Youth…’

    A bottle of Bayer’s ‘Heroin’.

    (I’m surprised that they remember anything!!)

    Between 1890 and 1910 heroin was sold as a non-addictive substitute for morphine.

    It was also used to treat children suffering with a strong cough.

    Coca Wine, anyone?

    Metcalf’s Coca Wine was one of a huge variety of wines with cocaine on the market.

    Everybody used to say that it would make you happy and it would also work as a medicinal

    Mariani Wine.

    Mariani wine (1875) was the most famous Coca wine of it’s time.

    Pope Leo XIII used to carry one bottle with him all the time.

    He awarded Angelo Mariani (the producer) with a Vatican gold medal.


    Produced by the Maltine Manufacturing Company of New York.

    It was suggested that you should take a full glass with or after every meal.

    Children should only take half a glass.

    A paper weight:

    A paper weight promoting C.F. Boehringer & Soehne ( Mannheim , Germany ).

    They were proud of being the biggest producers in the world

    of products containing Quinine and Cocaine.

    Opium for Asthma:

    At 40% alcohol plus 3 grams of opium per tablet,

    it didn’t cure you, but you didn’t care…

    Cocaine Tablets (1900).

    All stage actors, singers, teachers and preachers had to have them for a maximum performance. Great to ‘smooth’ the voice.

    Cocaine drops for toothache.

    Very popular for children in 1885.

    Not only did they relieve the pain, they made the children very happy!

    Opium for new-borns.

    I’m sure this would make them sleep well (not only the Opium, but also 46% alcohol)!

    It’s no wonder they were called, ‘The Good Old Days’!!

    From cradle to grave…

    Everyone Was Stoned!!!

  5. I once worked on a case in Jackson, MS where the wife of a defendant tied a bottle of hooch to a string her husband had lowered from the jail. This was the old (now closed) jail on the top floor of the courthouse and it had real bars on the windows. Defendant husband was charged with armed robbery while stone drunk. You would have thought the wife would have known better, but she ended up on the wrong side of those bars as well. BTW, hubby got fifteen years, and the sentence was that light because he was so messed up from his ETOH habit the jury and judge felt sorry for him.

  6. “The thing that impresses me most about America is the way parents obey their children. ~Edward, Duke of Windsor, Look, 5 March 1957”

  7. Buddha,

    Thats been said before. Just think of how much money the government could make off of regulations oh and taxes…..I think RJR has a valid patent waiting to be used.

    Now for the selfish bastard grandson. I hope he gets it in the end. Really, a Boner and ass ripping. One that he should never forget. Kinda of like an ass whipping but deeper, longer and harder.

  8. Marijuana is illegal why again exactly?

    Oh, that’s right. DuPont couldn’t sell nylon rope to the Navy if they had to compete with cheaper and more ecologically friendly hemp rope and William Randolph Hearst couldn’t profit from making paper from wood pulp if it had competition from a cheap easily renewable resource that neither family of greedy pigs could control.

    So now an 85 year old man may spend the last years of his life in prison. Because the DuPonts and Hearsts and the graft they applied to the system over 80 years ago. Artificial prohibition for personal profits.

    This is both sad and stupid in many ways.
