Durham police have arrested a 93-year-old man on cocaine-trafficking and related charges.

William C. Tinnen (above) was arrested Thursday during a raid at 204 Teel St., police said in a news release issued today. Police spokeswoman Kammie Michael said she assumed police had a tip that drug activity was taking place there.

In addition to trafficking, Tinnen is charged with possession of cocaine with the intent to sell or deliver, possession of drug paraphernalia and maintaining a dwelling for the sale of drugs. Officers also confiscated three firearms from the house.

Tinnen’s bond was set at $200,000.

He was among four people arrested by the Special Operations Division in two raids and an undercover operation.
