Bail denied for Staten Island "cannabis king"

New York CityJonathan Braun, 27, and looking more like a "skinny slacker from Staten Island" than the leader of an international drug-trafficking ring, was denied bail at a Brooklyn hearing June 3, with federal magistrate Viktor Pohorelsky saying, "The government has posited substantial evidence of Mr. Braun's involvement in this conspiracy, which involves huge amounts of marijuana and huge amounts of money."

Braun is accused of smuggling more than 100,000 kilos of marijuana into the US through Indian reservations along the Canadian border. DEA agents arrested him last week in Staten Island, where he lives with his Orthodox Jewish parents, a sister and a 90-year-old grandparent. (NY Daily News, June 4)
