Oye Vay.

Federal authorities in New York  are alleging that Jonathan Braun, 27, ran an international pot smuggling operation and associated with the Hells Angels while living at home with his Orthodox Jewish parents in Staten Island, the New York Daily News reported.

His bond hearing is set for Thursday in U.S. District Court in Brooklyn.

Authorities allege that he smuggled 100,000 kilos of marijuana across the Canadian border.

“He’s the real deal,” a law enforcement source told the Daily News. “He’s huge.”

The Daily News reports that Braun allegedly used “a small army of boatmen and drivers who used vehicles with hidden compartments to transport pot from Canada through the Akwesasne Native American reservations to New York, court papers say.”

Authorities allege that proceeds from street level dealers went to Braun’s Canadian bosses, and that he headed up the organization’s U.S. operation, the Daily News reported.
