Cops raid 86th Street pot shop

Police officers and the New York Sheriff’s Joint Compliance Task Force raided Gelato on 86th Street near Third Avenue Monday.

The raid came a day after the New York Post published a story featuring an interview with a Gelato employee.

“That’s nothing new,” the worker told the paper about potential penalties. “That’s always been a possibility of getting raided here. But I’m not going to be put out of a job.”

Cops also raided the shop last year.
