Flood's son had weed
The son of a Jersey City councilwoman was nabbed selling marijuana out of his mom's Mercedes Thursday night, officials said.
At 6:50 p.m. Phillip Flood Jr., 28, of Wayne Street, and Christopher Rodas, 18, of Neptune Avenue, were arrested at Wayne and Barrow streets, reports said. Flood is the son of Jersey City Councilwoman-at-Large Willie Flood, who is also the Hudson County registrar.
Phillip Flood Jr. and Rodas were charged with numerous drug offenses, including dealing drugs within 1,000 feet of a school and within 500 feet of a park, reports said.
Narcotics Squad officers doing surveillance watched a man hand money to Rodas, who then walked over to the parked 1999 Mercedes and handed Flood Jr. the money, reports said. Flood Jr. passed Rodas a bag of suspected marijuana and Rodas handed it to the buyer, reports said.
Officers converged on the Mercedes and arrested Flood Jr., who had a cigar rolled with marijuana propped behind his ear, reports said, adding that he was also found to have another bag of suspected marijuana. Police arrested Rodas and found he was carrying 13 bags of suspected marijuana and one vial of suspected cocaine, reports said.
The police released the Mercedes to the councilwoman, who lives on Forrest Street, reports said. She could not be reached for comment yesterday.
