JERSEY CITY, NJ- Authorities confiscated 50 pounds of high-grade marijuana, 900 grams of cocaine and approximately $125,000 in cash when a man was arrested this week in Jersey City, the Hudson County Prosecutor’s Office announced.
Hasung Christopher Lee, 28, of Grand Street, was arrested Tuesday following a two-day investigation by the HCPO’s Narcotics Task Force and a search of his home.
Authorities also recovered 1,000 tabs of N-BOMe — a hallucinogen — approximately 200 doses of liquid THC, and more than 100 Xanax pills, Hudson County Prosecutor Esther Suarez said.
Authorities placed the estimated street value of the recovered drugs at approximately $300,000. Task force members also seized three vehicles, said Suarez, who credited the Jersey City Police Department with assisting in the arrest.
