Ex “Mob Wives” actress Drita D’Avanzo and her husband were arrested on Thursday night at their home in Staten Island after police served a search warrant. D’Avanzo, 43, and her 50-year-old boyfriend, Lee, face a slew of charges for guns and drugs.
Authorities say they have found at their Pleasant Plains home two loaded firearms and assorted medications, including painkillers and anti-anxiety medicines such as hydrocodone and Xanax, as well as a high quality marijuana and a scale.
They were charged with criminal possession of a controlled substance, criminal possession of a weapon, criminal possession of marijuana, criminal possession of a firearm and criminal possession of drug paraphernalia.
The couple was also charged with acting in a manner injurious to a child under the age of 17, as children were home at the time of the arrest.
The arrests came after the NYPD received tips from the community.
