NYPD Seizes $1 Million Worth of Weed


New York City cops on Friday made a major bust in West Village, seizing 300 pounds of marijuana and arresting three men charged with criminal possession of marijuana, Gothamist reports.

According to the police, the three men were allegedly unloading a crate from a van when cops arrived on the scene. The crate, which was labeled “art,” was reportedly meant to be delivered to a Bleecker Street home. There was another crate — that one labeled “auto parts” — in the van as well, though it was addressed to another location.

Those arrested are 27-year-old Matthew Parrigo, 27-year-old Christopher Bender, and Patrick Johnson, a 46-year-old man who lives at the West Village home to which the weed was allegedly being delivered.

The weed, when broken down into small bags, could sell for about $1 million. Read more at Gothamist.
