1. How did the police know that it was going on? 2. Heroin is what is really wrong with St. Charles. It's marijuana,,, no one has died from smoking a natural plant. 3. This is the only way this corrupt city makes money... finding petty offenses and ruining someones life over it, just to make a quick buck... i guess 364 has to be paid somehow...
