Sure a North Babylon fireman was arrested on possession of guns and marijuana. This does not surprise me since they all do not have a life.

The arrests were the culmination of a probe by local and federal authorities stretching back about eight years""

Thatsa one long p-r-o-b-e. They couldn't close the case sooner than a near decade? I'll bet the 'expenses' of the investigation were more than the crop's street value. A lucrative business, growing the stuff and stopping the growing.
so what

Reread the article. FORMER NORTH BABYLON FIRE CHIEFS SON WAS ARRESTED. The former chief was not arrested and the guns in his home were all legal hunting rifles, there was no pot at his home. These are nice people.

Took Barney Fife and his pals 8 years to finally shut them down. Man that must be a new world record on foot dragging!

This is more about making money for the government than anything else. These bastards will now sieze everything these people have right down to birthday presents, claiming everything they have was bought with "drug" money.
Wow, I sure feel safer these people are off the street.......What a friggin joke.

Give me a break....go catch some terrorist.
I've never touched pot and have zero interest, but, like Jesse Ventura, I belive it simply should be legalized. They make these guys out to be like heroin dealers or something.

Too bad thee last names aren't Lohan, Richie or paris...if it was they would get a fine and slap on the wrist.
