Self Storage Unit Near NYC Seized With a 'Tremendous' Amount of Drugs


BULLS HEAD, Staten Island (WABC) --

As reported by ABC7NY, Staten Island police of the 120th precinct in New York City seized a large quantity of marijuana yesterday from a self storage unit.

The incident occurred Thursday in Staten Island.

In a Twitter post boasting about the capture, police described the quantity as "tremendous." The officers recovered over 275 pounds of marijuana, 3,935 Rove THC cartridges, and 8,100 Glo extracts (cannabis oil cartridges used in vaping).

"That’s an awful lot of illegal drugs that will never be sold on the streets of #StatenIsland thanks to the great men and women @NYPD120Pct and @StatenIslandDA https://t.co/FBGtnBH6Ft"

Given that the investigation is ongoing, details have not emerged about how the 120th precinct was tipped off about the drugs; however, they did obtain a search warrant to inspect the storage unit.

The facility remains open for use while further details emerge, and police hope to identify those responsible for storing this large quantity of illegal drugs.

While the street value has yet to be determined, it is estimated to be significant, and the police officers involved in the seizure are already receiving praise for removing these drugs from the streets of Staten Island.
