Social Security payments just weren't cutting it

DURHAM, N.C. - A 93-year-old man was charged with cocaine-trafficking Thursday, the same day police netted three other people on charges of possessing heroin, opium and a slew of prescription drugs, police said Friday.

William C. Tinnen, also charged with possession of cocaine with intent to sell, was jailed before being released Friday on $200,000 bond, said Kammie Michael, spokeswoman for the Durham Police Department.

Tinnen also was sentenced for cocaine possession in 2001, and given a suspended sentence, Michael said.

Three others were arrested in the two raids as a part of an undercover operation, police said.
