LOS ANGELES (CBSLA) — Police say a drug dealer disguised himself as a homeless outreach advocate in Venice, taking advantage of the homelessness crisis in the area.

The suspect, identified as Gary Featherstone, allegedly set up a tent and dealt PCP and meth to the people he claimed to be helping.

According to police, Featherstone also sold sodas and snacks to disguise the drug deals.

When he was arrested on Friday, police said they found more than $15,000 in cash inside his tent.
