Grandson of mob boss John Gotti arrested on drug charges in Queens |

John Gotti, one of the namesake grandsons of the infamous mob boss, was arrested on state narcotics charges Thursday morning in Queens.

Queens District Attorney Richard A. Brown said that John was one of seven people taken in after a year-long drug string that ended with police seizing $240,000 in cash after executing search warrants on John’s business, his two cars and his home, along with the homes of two of the other men who were arrested.

More than 850 Oxycodone and Xanax pills, drug ledgers and records were also discovered  and seized by authorities during their searches on Thursday. 

Speaking at a press conference on Thursday afternoon, NYPD Chief of Detectives Robert Boyce referred to the infiltration and take-down of the alleged drug ring as Operation Beach Party.
