PATERSON, N.J. -- A Paterson barber ran a side business selling drugs from his shop -- until city police raided it, authorities said Friday.
Narcotics detectives hit Jonny Blades Barber Shop at McBride Avenue early Thursday night after watching a drug deal go down, Police Director Jerry Speziale said.
Arrested were owner Jonny Muro, 43, along with 45-year-old Richard Espinal and Nilmary Stevens, 37, all of Paterson.
Detectives seized 10 ounces of marijuana, three dozen baggies of cocaine and cash from all three totaling nearly $1,050, Speziale said.
They charged the trio with possession with the intent to distribute the drugs. They were released pending a court hearing.
