JERSEY CITY, N.J. (AP) — A man who won New Jersey’s lottery twice has been arrested on drug charges.
Police in Jersey City stopped James Callahan for a traffic violation last weekend. They allegedly seized nearly 350 prescription drug pills and at least two weapons including an assault firearm.
A subsequent search of Callahan’s apartment yielded cocaine, marijuana and prescription drugs, police told the Jersey Journal. Three weapons and hollow-point bullets were allegedly found in a storage locker.
The 53-year-old Callahan won nearly $700,000 on winning tickets in New Jersey’s Cash 5 game — once in November 2015 and again in November 2016.
