A 44-year Brooklyn man was arrested by port authorities. He was preciously convicted of murder and placed on lifetime parole.
During a routine stop, Kenneth “Kenny” Christian was pulled over for a defective headlight. This occurred in lower Manhattan at the Holland Tunnel’s mouth at about 6:15 AM. Authorities smelled weed while issuing a ticket, says officials.
The car was searched, and the cop found $3,400 in cash, drug paraphernalia and 13 pounds of cannabis, according to Joseph Pentangelo, Port Authority Police spokesman.
Not much is known about Kenneth Christian except that he is on lifetime parole. So, authorities are determined to use this drug bust to make sure he gets a very long prison sentence.
Christian was charged with sale and possession of marijuana and criminal use of drug paraphernalia, officials said. He also received a traffic summons for the defective headlight.
Christian was released from prison in 2013 after doing 20 years in prison for a Brooklyn murder conviction, officials said.
