Four Arrested Regarding Hoffman’s CaseBy: Alexandria Sardam - February 6, 2014
Police have arrested four people in connection to the death investigation of Philip Seymour Hoffman.
After receiving a tip that there had been heavy drug dealing out of a New York City apartment, police executed search warrants for three units of a Mott Street apartment. During the search police recovered more than 350 bags of heroin.
57-year-old Robert Vineberg and 48-year-old Thomas Cushman were both charged with felony criminal possession of a controlled substance. Vineberg was also charged with criminal use of drug paraphernalia.
Max Rosenbloom and Juliana Luchkiw, both 22-years-old were charged with criminal use of drug paraphernalia, criminal use of controlled substance, and unlawful possession of marijuana.
The connection between the four arrested and Hoffman’s death is still unclear.
In the meantime, police had tested the heroin to discover if it was laced with any additional substances like fentanyl, a synthetic morphine linked to 22 suspected overdoes deaths in western PA.
Reports have concluded that fentanyl was not included in the recovered heroin.
Fans, friends and family are still mourning the loss of the actor, taking to social media to express their sympathy for the lost life.
The Frank E. Campbell Funeral Home said Hoffman’s family has requested a private funeral. It will be held Friday.
