Whitley man talks about sex for drugs charges from jail

Emergency crews and police were called to Greens Apartments in Williamsburg early Thursday. The call was an overdose subject. Then police ran into Foster Crabtree, who they say was unsteady on his feet.

“I was high as a kite, OK?” Crabtree told WYMT's Phil Pendleton Friday from the Whitley County Jail.

Crabtree admits from jail he took too many Oxycontins or Percocets. And he says what he may have told police next ...never happened.

“You see they had me mixed up. I was so confused,” he said.

Police say Crabtree told them he traded pills for sex.

“I’ve been arrested for trafficking twice before. But I was not selling pills….was not trading pills for sex,” Crabtree said.

The Williamsburg police chief says trading sex for drugs is actually a big problem, especially among the older crowd.

The 67 year old Crabtree says he has had serious drug problems in the past but he claims his dealing days are over.

“This time I had no intention of selling, that is the truth,” he said.

He has two trafficking convictions on his record and he knows he’s in trouble again. But he vows that this time…..is the last time.

“After getting hit with this, I’m not fooling with nothing no more,” he said.
