The police also found $7,500 worth of cash, 12 grams of cocaine, and 30 grams of fentanyl. Lombardi has been charged with a total of 163 criminal counts, including possession of a controlled substance with intent to deliver, possession of a prohibited large-capacity feeding device, possession of a firearm while committing a controlled substance violation, and possession of a firearm by a prohibited person.
