Schoolboy’s candy cash haul
WHEN Jeremy was in Year 8 in the early 1990s, his single mother started dating a new man named Andy who worked at the Nerds candy factory.
Jeremy was elated. Andy would bring home dozens and dozens of packets for Jeremy.
But then Jeremy realised he didn’t like sour lollies. Luckily, he did like enterprise. Over the coming months Jeremy would take his surplus of Nerds and build a syndicated network of sales agents at his local high school. Jeremy went from nerd to kingpin, rolling in cash.
But when a drug bust goes down at school, all eyes turn to Jeremy and his network of candy dealers. Will he take the wrap for a far greater crime?
