Everybody has seen the movie “American Gangster” starring Denzel Washington, T.I., and Russell Crowe, but what you may not know is that the movie was based on a true story.
Frank Lucas was a famous Harlem drug kingpin who once ran a billion dollar heroin business.
Frank is still alive today, and at 81 years old still in trouble with the Feds.
Lucas is facing possible jail time after defrauding the U.S. government out of $17, 300
Crazy right? Especially for someone who had that much power, but get this. About a year ago, Lucas’ ex- wife, 70 year old Julianna Farrait, was arrested in Puerto Rico for selling coke, claiming she missed the fast pace and high rolling life of the drug world.
Damn, guess money calls no matter what age you are. According to NYDailyNews, Frank was charged with theft by deception after he allegedly told the U.S Treasury he lost his 15 year old sons Social Security check and asked for a duplicate.
Wait…this man is 81 and has a 15 year old son, guess that drug money is getting him some “goodies” afterall. Anyway Lucas supposedly then cashed both of the duplicate checks in Newark, NJ, said the prosecutors.
Frank denied any wrong-doing and has been attempting to work out a deal to avoid time. Idk about this…check him out…tryna work out a deal and snitchin…just like the movie.lol. Im gonna need for his son to come get his Daddy!
This is crazy! I guess Frank Lucas is tyrna say he’s still a hustla and yall better know it. Breaking laws and committing crimes right in time for christmas!
