HACKENSACK, N.J. – Detectives arrested a disbarred lawyer and his neighbor at a Hackensack apartment complex after finding them with an assortment of drugs, authorities said.
Marijuana, cocaine, oxycodone, psilocybin mushrooms, Ecstasy, Suboxone and drug packaging materials were all found, along with $5,751 in apparent drug proceeds,
Bergen County Prosecutor Gurbir S. Grewal said Monday.
Arrested were Barry A. Hoffberg, a 50-year-old former attorney, and Kevin Concannon, 44, the prosecutor said.

Armed with a warrant, they raided the apartment on Friday, arresting Hoffberg and Concannon – who was charged with hindering and cocaine possession.
Hoffberg, meanwhile, was charged with a variety of drug-related offenses.
