The Nerdiest Meth King Ever

What do you do with all that drug money? Spend it on loose women and alcohol? Not this guy! Meet the "nerdiest meth king" ever caught:

Aaron Castro of Commerce City, Colo., was one of the leaders of a 41-person methamphetamine ring, which federal authorities said brought massive quantities of the drug into Colorado from Phoenix. He also apparently had a huge passion for comic books – he used his earnings to buy 18,753 of them.

You read that right: 18,753.

And if you think meth is addictive, try comic books:

But an associate told detectives that Castro’s comic collecting also seemed to have turned into a kind of mania, and he “began to struggle with money because he would spend his drug money on comic books,” court papers said.
