Mob Wives star Drita D’Avanzo was arrested last month with her husband, Lee D’Avanzo, after an NYPD raid on their Staten Island home. According to Fox News, her husband is now facing charges after a massive marijuana bust in New Jersey, after the couple was arrested on other drug and gun charges. The operation was named “on the ropes.”
The press release from the office of the Monmouth County Prosecutor, stated that Lee was arrested and charged with fourth-degree conspiracy to possess marijuana and fourth-degree possession of marijuana in excess of 50 grams. There were 23 other men and women, in this huge narcotics bust. According to the Monmouth County Prosecutor’s Office of Narcotics and Criminal Enterprise Unit, it was in the works for a year.
Lee and the others would allegedly purchased legitimate candy brands, such as; Nerds Rope and Sour Patch to illegally infuse them with THC. The candy would then be repackaged and sold illegally as THC-infused edibles. THC is tetrahydrocannabinol, and it “is the substance in marijuana that produces its high effect.”
The bust resulted in more than a dozen search warrants across three counties in this operation. According to the outlet, “Authorities seized roughly 21,000 packages of candy suspected to be infused with about 1,100 pounds of weed as well as more than 6,000 flavored THC vape cartridges. In total, the street value of the product seized is estimated at $1.9 million.”
According to the New York Police Department, after they received a search warrant of their home they found “two loaded firearms, 120 hydrocodone pills, 22 Xanax pills, two partial Xanax pills, a large quantity of marijuana and a scale.”
Drita and Lee were each charged on counts of “criminal possession of a controlled substance, possession of a weapon, possession of marijuana, criminal possession of a weapon in the fourth degree, and one count of criminal use of drug paraphernalia.”
Drita is out on bail for $15,000 and is due back in court at the end of the month. Her co-star, Renee Graziano, reacted kindly to the news on social media. Plus, Renee had included the hashtag #mobwivesreboot, fueling reports that the reboot will still happen in the future. Drita has been silent on social media, but she recently resurfaced and shared a positive Mother Teresa quote.
I have a feeling that Drita will tell her side of the story once everything settles down! It is smart for her to keep a low profile right now and just spend time with her daughters. I feel bad that her children have to go through more of these situations. I hope the Mob Wives reboot will finally happen! It would be interesting to see which castmates return, and how they plan on going about the series now after the loss of the star, ‘Big Ang’ Angela Raiola. We will have to stay tuned for more!
