So, Jerry made certain he remained in her good graces
He was glad he didn’t have to meet with her to collect his money; that was done though someone else. He would drive a truck to Miami and pick up the two million, stuffed in duffel bags, just like in the movies. Once, he was pulled over by a cop for a routine traffic violation, with the bags in the back of the truck. Lucky for both of them that nothing happened.
I concluded that at this point in his life, Jerry thought he could get away with anything. He didn’t fear the CIA, DEA, and certainly not the local law. He had escaped so many jams, he was invincible—-or so he reasoned. This was why he didn’t run when his people were caught with the load of cocaine. He certainly could have, either on his yacht or in a plane. In Colombia, he would’ve been safe. But he stayed. After all, he was who he was.
And he paid a terrible price!
