ASTORIA — An electrician for Kaufman Astoria Studios was arrested last Thursday after he allegedly had about 10 pounds of marijuana shipped to his workplace, police said.
Authorities said the building security for the studio, at 34-37 36th Ave., intercepted two cardboard packages filled with nine sealed plastic pouches of pot and called police to come at about 2:30 p.m.
Lowell Schulman, 53, of Berry Street in Brooklyn, told officers he had expected to get the marijuana but believed it would be a smaller amount sent with cologne and books, police said. Schulman was searched and officers also allegedly found five plastic, dime-bags of crack cocaine in his left pants pocket, police said.
The electrician had an open warrant, police said, and was arrested on 10 counts of criminal possession of marijuana, criminal possession of a controlled substance and unlawful possession of marijuana.
