Former Mob Wives star Drita D’Avanzo, 43, and her husband, Lee D’Avanzo, 50, an alleged associate of the Colombo crime family, appeared in court this afternoon to face drug and weapons charges after they were arrested during a raid on their home.
Photos taken at Staten Island Criminal Court show Drita, and her husband, Lee, being arraigned on 10 charges including, 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. As we reported earlier the couple’s home was raided after being tipped off due to concerns of the activities going on in their home.
A judge set bail for Lee at $100,000 and for his wife at $15,000. Both are due back in court on January 31.
Following the hearing, Drita walked out without her husband and got into a car with a younger man as her escort.
The D’Avanzos were taken into custody after police acting on a tip executed a search warrant at their $1million residence in the 200 block of Woodvale Avenue at 6pm on Thursday.
We reported that the police raided their home and found two loaded firearms, prescription painkillers and Xanax pills, a large quantity of marijuana and a scale.
