The New York Daily News reports that NYPD, working on a tip from the feds, found a shipping container, stashed in the wilds along Newtown Creek, with 290 pounds of marijuana and psychedelic mushrooms inside.
A good, old-fashioned stake-out ensued, with law enforcement nabbing 3 Long Island residents when they showed up to collect the hidden contraband.
The New York Daily News: Cops found the stash at a Maspeth Ave. dock in East Williamsburg Wednesday. Homeland Security tipped them off that a container full of drugs was coming to Brooklyn from Oregon and Arizona.
Cops watched as two men and a woman pulled up in a U-Haul truck and a Hyundai Thursday night. They loaded the contents into the U-Haul and left. Cops nabbed them at Morgan Ave. for blowing a red light.
