New Jersey troopers make marijuana arrest of rumored mobster

People who do not live in or around New Jersey believe that mobsters are the stuff of Hollywood writers. However, that does not stop law enforcement officials in the state from continuing to investigate individuals believed to be part of so-called crime families in the area. A recent marijuana arrest involved a man who is reportedly part of one of New Jersey's mob families.

An investigation being conducted by the New Jersey State Police led to a traffic stop on Saturday, Jan. 25. The driver is suspected of being a soldier in the same crime family in which his father is regarded to be a capo -- the Lucchese family. Police allegedly received permission from the driver to search his vehicle.

That search supposedly yielded 65 pounds of marijuana. No other details regarding the investigation that led to the traffic stop or the stop itself have been revealed. At last report, authorities were still holding the man arrested. His bond was set at $75,000.

The fact that the vehicle this man was driving allegedly contained a large quantity of marijuana will need to be connected to him before his guilt can be established. Fortunately, our system of justice considers him innocent until proved guilty in connection with the marijuana arrest. In spite of the man's rumored status as a mobster, he is entitled to the same rights as any other individual would be in a court of law. By acquiring a thorough knowledge of all legal options available to him, the accused man could be putting himself in position for the best possible outcome of his case.
