According to a criminal complaint, a Pennsylvania man charged with narcotics distribution claimed to police that he did not sell methamphetamine, but instead gave it away for free to those who came to his storage unit and asked for the drug. 56-year-old Mark Hiles was arrested Saturday for allegedly selling drugs from a storage unit several blocks from his home in Altoona. Hiles, free on $50,000 bond, faces a pair of felony drug charges and three misdemeanor counts. According to police, Hiles and 25-year-old Tyler Bartley were collared after investigators found them inside Hiles’s storage unit, which “appeared to being used as a residence.” In a post-arrest interview, Hiles was asked about the foot traffic to and from his storage unit. Hiles explained that “his friends stop by to see him because they know he has methamphetamine.” “The Defendant denied selling methamphetamine for money, but stated he would provide methamphetamine to users for free when they asked.” Hiles’s rap sheet includes multiple drug convictions, for which he has served several years in state prison.

Peanuts aren’t technically nuts

They’re legumes. According to Merriam-Webster, a nut is only a nut if it’s “a hard-shelled dry fruit or seed with a separable rind or shell and interior kernel.” That means walnuts, almonds, cashews, and pistachios aren’t nuts either. They’re seeds.
