We're not saying that you deal drugs. And you really shouldn't. But in the event that you decide to dabble in the controlled substance arts, it seems important to keep several things in mind. Things like: deal only with people you know. Don't send incriminating mass text messages to your huge customer list, things like "Shop is now opened DOB, Blues, kpins, subs & white girl."

Just kidding. Brennan says there were two dealers arrested, one of whom worked as a delivery man for a Papa John's outlet in Brooklyn. That guy, dressed in his delivery uniform, sold coke to undercover cops some 19 times, including Wednesday night, when he handed over a kilo worth $27,500 to authorities, along with a pizza and chicken nuggets.

The sentence is the culmination of a 15-month investigation launched by the NYPD in response to complaints from frightened neighbors living in the housing project, according to a release from the Manhattan District Attorney's Office.

Kudos to the NYPD for working with this Harlem community to weed out the actual criminals instead of simply harassing the entire neighborhood.
