(BUFFALO NEWS) — A pharmacology student apparently was selling drugs from an ice cream truck he drove through Cheektowaga neighborhoods last summer, federal authorities told the Buffalo News on Thursday.
Abraham I. Reinhardt, a 23-year-old Clarence resident who attends St. John Fisher College in Rochester, was arrested Wednesday for allegedly selling prescription painkillers, hallucinogenic mushrooms and marijuana after a four-month investigation.
He became a high priority for U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration agents after they received information that he was dealing drugs from the ice cream truck.

“The minute we heard that he had access to children through his ice cream truck route, we accelerated our investigation of him,” said Dale M. Kasprzyk, resident agent in charge of the DEA’s Buffalo office.
