Paterson police seize $31,000 cash in Lee Place drug raid


The police conducted a drug raid at an apartment on Lee Place, a block from the Passaic County Courthouse, seizing $31,000 in cash, according to public safety director Jerry Speziale.

Glenrick Lawson, 30, and Tiara Moses, 28, both of Paterson, were arrested and charged with drugs and weapons offenses. Both were also charged with certain persons not to have firearms due to previous convictions.

Police raided 13 Lee Place, apartment No. 4, on Friday at around 7:20 p.m. They seized 83 baggies of marijuana, a 40 caliber Taurus handgun with seven rounds, including hollow point bullets.

Police said the $31,000 seized in the raid are suspected drug proceeds.

Police began investigating drug distribution from Lawson and Moses’s apartment in June. They suspected PCP and marijuana was being sold by the two suspects.

    $31k ??? Guessing it was really $71k…


    If they said $31K than it was probably at least double that if not way more. When they raided Tabbaquito's house on Martin street back in 2008 he had a scale and a half ounce of pot along with almost $100K in cash. They turned in $7000 and got away with it.
