Hoboken Now: An innocent man detained

An innocent man detained
Of all the things I worry about living in Newark, having my home invaded by FBI agents doesn’t often make the top of the list. Crazy story.

A technology systems manager for a Hoboken insurance firm was asleep in his Newark home earlier this month when a SWAT team of FBI agents battered through the front door, held him and his 16-year-old son at gunpoint, tied their hands with plastic restraints and then started asking them questions.

Kevin Taylor told the Star-Ledger the agents never produced a warrant – or even a business card. He later discovered they’d been dispatched to arrest Charles “Buddy Musk” Muccigrosso, a 69-year-old reputed member of the Gambino crime family who hadn’t lived there in three months.
