Usually when an ice cream truck pulls up outside your house at nine at night it’s probably because they’re selling drugs. Or you’re going to get raped into oblivion. In this case it was the former.
Louis Scala Jr.,the 29-year-old son of a Manhattan police officer, will be doing three-and-a-half years behind bars for selling what his customers referred to as “special sprinkles” (aka the drug oxycodone) to residents in a Staten Island neighborhood. He’s part of a larger ring that police say raked in an estimated $1 million last year.
It went something like this – Scala would finish his regular route, selling cool refreshing confectionaries to local children and then park his green-and-white Lickety Split truck outside his house in Pleaseant Plains.
Nancy Wilkins, 40, of Brooklyn has already pleaded guilty to selling swiped prescription pads to the ring for $100 apiece. She was sentenced in June to six months in jail and five years probation.
