ENGLEWOOD, N.J. (AP) — Authorities have arrested three people following allegations of prostitution and drug use at a senior citizen housing complex in northern New Jersey.

Authorities have charged 75-year-old James Parham and 66-year-old Cheryl Chaney with possessing drug paraphernalia and maintaining a drug nuisance at the Vincente Tibbs Senior Citizen Building in Englewood.

Detective Capt. Timothy Torell tells The Record newspaper Parham also admitted providing prostitutes to some of his younger neighbors.

Police also charged 54-year-old Selma McDuffie, who has been suspended as a school crossing guard, with having a crack pipe.

Chief Arthur O’Keefe tells the newspaper residents were essentially prisoners in their own building.

The Englewood Housing Authority manages the 152-unit property, which serves the disabled and low-income residents who are 62 years and older.
