Thanks to a coordinated effort of the South Street Headhouse District, 4th Street Merchants, and the South Street Mini-Station... Stormin' Norman was finally caught dealing drugs on 4th Street. His dealings became highly disruptive along Fabric Row, and were bringing some rather disjointed characters who were contributing to shoplifting, public drug use on the side streets, etc.
When arrested for felony possession and distribution, he was caught with $1600 and an assortment of drugs. He also had 3 prior warrants waiting for him-so I don't think he'll be out anytime soon.
This is partly to do with the new leadership at the South Street Headhouse District, and I hope that this type of positive coordination continues. People can think that Norman was just some sweet innocent bum-but the fact is that he's a parasite that steals bikes, harasses local businesses, and has created more than a few problems for people over the years.
