Apparently family togetherness, when it comes to crime, is not limited to adult-diaper scamsters.
The Harris County Sheriff's Office announced this afternoon that they had busted a family of six for selling crack from their home on the northeast side of town.
Included: a grandfather, father, mother, daughter, son, son-in-law, and cousin. And one guy who's still on the loose.
The six were arrested at the home in the 12800 block of Magic Drive after neighbors complained that they were, you know, selling crack.
