HACKENSACK, N.J. – Detectives in Bergen County arrested a disbarred lawyer originally from New City after finding a trove of drugs at his apartment.

Marijuana, cocaine, oxycodone, psilocybin mushrooms, Ecstasy, Suboxone and drug packaging materials were all found, along with $5,751 in apparent drug proceeds, in the Hackensack apartment of 50-year-old Barry A. Hoffberg, Bergen County Prosecutor Gurbir S. Grewal said Monday.

Grewal said his investigators began watching Hoffberg -- who was graduated from Clarkstown North High School -- after getting a tip that he was dealing drugs from the complex at 240 Prospect Avenue.

Armed with a warrant, they raided the apartment on Friday, arresting Hoffberg and a neighbor, Kevin Concannon, 44 – who was charged with hindering and cocaine possession.

Hoffberg, meanwhile, was charged with a variety of drug-related offenses.

Both were released pending bail hearings.
