The daughter of a well known New York real estate player has been arrested along with her boyfriend for trying to sell heroin online. Authorities say the couple was caught with 30 baggies of heroin during a weekend sting operation. 27-year-old Katheryn Kalikow and 28-year-old Brian Whalen reportedly advertised the work on Craigslist as "high quality diesel pain relief." They were arrested on Sunday night after agreeing to sell the drugs to undercover officers in the Bronx for $440.
Kalikow's father, Peter Kalikow, has a billion dollar fortune. To illustrate how important this dude is, just know that he used to run the Metropolitan Transit Authority, the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey and owned the New York Post.
Officers responded to the Craigslist post and set up a meeting near Fordham University's campus. According to the criminal complaint, Kalikow told the officers "I have the drugs. He's my boyfriend and I was holding on to it for him." Kalikow and Whalen were arrested and charged with possession of drugs with intent to deliver and possession.
As an another example of how green—no pun intended—these two are, Whalen has photos of six different kinds of marijuana on his Facebook account. His attorney, Marvin Raskin, says he has pleaded not guilty and has been released from jail.
