Pound of crystal meth found by cops at NYC hotel housing migrants: sources

A pound of crystal meth was recovered by police in a room at a Staten Island hotel that has been converted into emergency housing for migrants, according to sources.

The drugs, which were stuffed inside a black bag, were first spotted by a worker at the Ramada Inn on North Gannon Avenue around 9:30 p.m. Wednesday, law enforcement sources told The Post.

An asylum seeker had resided in the room where the meth was located, sources said, but no one was there at the time of the discovery.

…“It currently costs taxpayers $93,000 for each family housed in these units, which is more than many Staten Islanders make in one year,” the statement said.
