The 12-year-old drug dealer arrested on Wednesday during a massive drug raid in Queens turned 13 behind bars. The Daily News reports, "Sources said the girl, whose name was withheld, hung out after school with some older girls at the Almeda Ave. apartment of one of the men in the drug crew. The other girls smoked pot and had sex with the dealers in exchange for drugs and pocket money. But while the 13-year-old - who looked older than her age - didn't have sex with the men, she was sent out to peddle drugs for them." Cops only found out her age when her mom came to the station house.
