A Pelecanos Question

I love George Pelecanos.  He writes about Petworth, Columbia Heights, and Park View with love and grit.  In his latest Drama City on page 43 he writes:  “Dealers all over the city did the same thing, [Ed. note: set up shops to launder drug money], beauty and nail parlors, variety stores, an such.  White dealers, moving cocaine, mostly, did it too, at those antique shops in Adams Morgan and at boutiques on the western edge of the new Shaw.”  I know this is a work of fiction but do you really think the antique shops in Adams Morgan are fronts for laundering money?
