One-Time: Mike Vick’s Uncle Popped For Selling Heroin

- By Bossip Staff Categories: News, One-Time, SMH

Michael Vick’s uncle was just popped for running a heroin ring in Virginia:

Michael Vick’s uncle has been arrested and charged in a federal heroin bust in Newport News. Joseph Vick Jr., 57, of Newport News, is accused of…… being a midlevel distributor who was responsible for the distribution of heroin to more than 40 street-level dealers. He was one of 22 people arrested Thursday in a coordinated effort led by the FBI.

Joseph Vick is the brother of both Brenda Vick, the NFL star’s mother, and Councilwoman Tina Vick. Tina Vick confirmed Thursday that Joseph Vick is her brother, but she didn’t know he had been arrested. “I had not heard about any of that,” she said.

According to an affidavit filed in U.S. District Court in Newport News, Joseph Vick dealt drugs with his live-in girlfriend, Tonnette Williams, listed as either 42 or 43 years old, of Newport News. She’s also accused of being a midlevel distributor. “(Joseph) Vick and his live-in girlfriend … get bundles of heroin” from other drug dealers, “and Vick distributes the heroin,” according to the affidavit, written by Newport News Master Police Detective Brandon E. Price.

Bundles of heroin typically contain about 10 “bags,” which are equal to about 100 milligrams each. Confidential police informants purchased drugs five times from Joseph Vick, who was then living on 41st Street, the affidavit said. One informant made buys on Dec. 2, Dec. 11 and Dec. 13, 2008. Another informant bought drugs on Jan. 3 and Jan. 23, 2009.

The affidavit states Joseph Vick paid $60 per bundle, and sold them at a profit. One reference in the affidavit says he sold each bundle for $100 apiece, while another said he sold them for $200 each. The purchases were “monitored and recorded using video surveillance equipment,” according to the affidavit. In lab tests, the substances all came back as heroin. The two informants, the affidavit states, are “being compensated financially” for their cooperation.

What are they drinking over there? SMH

    Those are probably users snitching. They cut deals to stay out of the joint *and* keep using – informants are not useful to the investigators if they are in lockup. You “financially compensate” them so that they have enough bread to go back on the streets, find the next dealer to feed their addiction and start the cycle again. Users are a dealers best friend *and* worst enemy the first time they get popped for drug possession/use.
