San Francisco residents were outraged when a convicted child molester set up a tent across the street from a Catholic elementary school and put up a sign offering free fentanyl for new users.
46-year-old Adam Moore says he has been homeless in San Francisco for 26 years, but he has been living on the street near the Stella Maris Academy for over two years.
He got the attention of authorities after he set up a sign reading, “Free fentanyl 4 new users,” and another reading, “Meth for stolen items.”
KGO-TV went to interview Moore and ask him if he was serious about his offer.
“Were you giving away fentanyl? Was that just a joke?” asked reporter Dan Noyes.
“No, it’s not a joke,” Moore responded.
He went on to say that he was merely passing on what others had dropped off in exchange for blankets and other supplies.
“So they bring me trash that they’ve scavenged, things that they think are valuable, or they give me some of the drugs that they have, which I don’t do,” Moore explained.
Moore had previously been convicted of “lewd and lascivious acts with a child under the age of 14,” but he maintained that he was innocent.
“I was innocent of all of the charges that I’ve been accused of convicted of,” he said.
Despite his previous conviction, Moore is not required to stay 2000 feet away from schools because he is not considered a “high risk” offender.
“I was told that he is in compliance with all the components of what his sex registration are,” said SFPD Captain Chris Canning to KGO.
The homeless man was cited for misdemeanor battery because of a physical altercation he had with the father of a student at the school. He also filed a complaint of assault against the man.
Moore had a different answer when asked by KION-TV if he actually had drugs in his tent.
“Yeah, this is actually happening but only because I’m tired,” he responded. “If you guys want to flush the whole world down the toilet, if you guys want to ignore people like me, it’s at your own peril.”
