Queens bootlegger busted with $36K worth of booze in Massachusetts


A Queens man was busted for hauling more than $36,000 worth of booze in his car in Massachusetts, police said.
Jia Chen, 36, of Flushing, was pulled over by state police on Route 495 in Berlin at about 7:30 p.m. on Saturday after swerving across traffic lanes, Massachusetts State Police said.
When he was stopped, the officer noticed boxes of Jameson, Barcardi, Jack Daniels and Kettle One stacked from floor to ceiling in the back of his black Chevrolet Suburban.
It’s illegal in the state to transport more than three gallons of liquor without a permit, cops said.
Booze smugglers typically haul big loads of alcohol from the state to resell it in other areas, cops added.
Chen was arrested and hit with unlawful transport of liquor and several traffic violations.
His bail was set at $240 and the booze was confiscated.
