Marvin Moody, 38, was charged with possession with the intent to distribute the drugs after a raid Thursday at his East 23rd Street home near Public School No. 21, Police Director Jerry Speziale said.
Investigators targeted Moody late last year after being told he was dealing near the corner of 10th Avenue and E. 23rd Street, Speziale said
