NORTHVALE, N.J. – A Northvale DPW foreman grew large pot plants in his backyard and had steroids and more than $5,600 cash in his home, said authorities who arrested him.
Joseph Scaglione, 61, was busted after authorities searched his Walnut Street residence and found 10 large marijuana plants growing in his backyard, Bergen County Prosecutor Gurbir S. Grewal said Monday.
Inside, they found several ounces of pot and anabolic steroids -- which detectives seized along with the cash. Grewal said.
Scaglione was released pending an Oct. 4 first appearance on drug charges in Central Judicial Processing in Hackensack, the prosecutor said.
