Two men were arrested in Staten Island after being caught weighing five pounds of marijuana in their car in Park Hill. And the geniuses could have gotten away with it too, if it weren't for those pesky one-way streets. Lavarro Lee, 40, and Jody Pierre-Raphael, 28, were parked facing the wrong way on Long Pond Road and Skyline Drive on Wednesday, which attracted the cop attention. Pierre-Raphael had a scale and the tub of pot on his lap, and Lee was found with a forged California driver's license. They were charged with criminal possession of marijuana and drug paraphernalia.
