Norman remains on the Street ... for now.

I saw an orange application for a liquor license on the side of Jim's this morning. Have they always sold booze or is this something new?
Maybe they're getting paid enough to look the other way.
How do you know that it isn't connected and possibly part of a larger investigation? Additionally, I don't think $30,000 worth of drugs on one person's possession in one day is quite a small operation.
edit-it was no secret that Norman was a regular, err, fixture, on the corner houses of 5th and christian.
I think of Jim's as being a small operation because it's flown under the radar for quite some time. Based on the not-so-clever side door subterfuge and the pathetically obvious frat bros in search of weed I've seen hovering around that corner for the past 10 years, I get the impression that it was going on at a level that the cops either couldn't pin down or that they could tolerate, maybe both. We don't know if that 30K was one day's take....do we?
Jim's hasn't flown under the radar-people just haven't connected the actors with it until now. Previously, one of the owners was busted for cocaine. At that point they found "140 grams of cocaine, 180 Valium tablets, 375 Mandrax tablets, 192 Halcion tablets, a small quantity of marijuana, a .38-caliber revolver, $2,450 in cash and drug paraphernalia including computerized weight scales and packaging items" in his home. One drug dealer can spot another one in a second, so I'd be amazed if they weren't connected.
i definitely saw Norman at Mako's last night. he looked especially effed up. like he was coming off a bender of his own.
Looked at the liquor application today. It is just a change in partnership/stock since that one owner recently died. Nothing more than paperwork housekeeping.

Now read along, if you can, densealot-
"An informant's tip led to a three-week investigation of Proetto and the request for a search warrant, according to court records. According to an affidavit of probable cause, police searching his home found 140 grams of cocaine, 180 Valium tablets, 375 Mandrax tablets, 192 Halcion tablets, a small quantity of marijuana, a .38-caliber revolver, $2,450 in cash and drug paraphernalia including computerized weight scales and packaging items."
I deleted the personal bickering.

There was no 'personal bickering'; dancealot, as usual, threw around a lot of terms he failed to understand, while being factually incorrect in his other posts. I merely pointed out his inaccuracies, and that he obviously got lost and thought he was still in the nintendo poke on chatroom mommy subscribed for him.
I love the bickering, nobody bitch slaps like loveisnoise.
I have a best of collection, one of my favorites.
