Jeeze, I wonder if this old guy was tested for Alzheimer's, or mental capability. This takes on a different perspective....Paz, Chivis

Detroit— Alleged drug dealers working for Mexico's most powerful narcotics ring joked about using an 87-year-old man to haul cocaine across the country, according to conversations secretly recorded by federal wiretaps.
Delgado-Sanchez of Miami has been charged alongside Sharp and 16 others in a massive drug conspiracy case in Detroit.
They had obtained a search warrant for his cellphone and tracked him as he traveled eastbound on Interstate 94.
Sharp's lawyer, Darryl Goldberg, said the traffic stop appears to be suspicious.
The cocaine was unloaded and distributed to members of the drug ring, who met at a warehouse in Wyandotte, according to the indictment.
The members reportedly returned to the warehouse with cash from drug deals. The money was loaded into vehicles, including an RV, and driven back to the Mexican border.
