Police break up alleged drug dealing at South Street Jim’s Steaks

    Ordering a cheesesteak and coke at the Jim’s Steaks on South Street would have gotten you something very different than a steak and beverage not too long ago.

    The Daily News reports today police uncovered a drug dealing operation there over the summer and arrested a long-time manager for dealing cocaine and various other narcotics.

    Andre McMillan, 48, no longer works at Jim’s and was reportedly due in court today. Officers confiscated cocaine, marijuana, Percocet, Xanax, Endocet, cash and McMillian’s car, all totaling about $25,000.

    His drug connections are apparently unknown to his coworkers, who’ve also dealt with the drug convictions and arrests of late Jim’s co-owner William Proetto.
