After the recent murder of 18-year-old Adrian Rivera, Hoboken officials hosted a public meeting at a housing authority building to discuss ongoing drug and gun issues.

Hudson County Prosecutor Esther Suarez revealed to the 100 or so residents on hand that the murder of 18-year-old Adrian Rivera was not a random act of violence, with over three pounds of marijuana and over $13,000 cash found in his Marshall Drive apartment.

“We found over three pounds of marijuana, which is certainly more than I would anticipate anyone would have for their own personal consumption, and we found over $13,000 in cash,” Suarez revealed.
