THE DIRTY ARMY: Nik this piece of work is Ryan Castillo. He was a good friend of mine, someone I had known since high school, someone who I opened my home to many times. One night a couple of years ago I saw him in Westport. He begged me to give him and his friend a ride because he couldn’t afford a cab home. I drove them to Cold Storage lofts on 3rd & Delaware, and as I got out of I was struck on the head with a blunt object. The police found me bleeding and barefoot in the rain. My van was gone. The police offered to take me to the hospital, but knowing the people with my van also had my house keys, I asked them to take me home. When we arrived my door was wide open, and my big screen, computers, laptops, Xbox, Wii, and DVDs were all gone. He even stole my daughter’s Disney movies and an antique baby cradle given to her by my deceased grandma. My daughter referred to this “man” as Uncle Ry. My van was found three days later, driven by crackheads that admitted trading drugs with Ryan for the vehicle. He’s been in hiding and has recently emerged using his founding member of 77 Jefferson status to start a new production company Youthman Reggae. I would appreciate any help getting the word out that this person is absolutely not to be trusted. He was thrown out of 77 Jefferson for stealing their, (his own brother) equipment and selling it for crack. Incidentally, the friend he was with that night was shot to death three months later. I was awoken by homicide detectives in the middle of the night because my ID and credit cards, (all of which were in my purse in my van) were found in his wallet at the time of his murder. Ryan is still wanted for questioning in that case.
