ATEMPLE University student's alleged illegitimate side hustle may have been to blame for a home-invasion robbery of his house near campus late Sunday night, cops said Monday.
Police arrested Massimo Pulcini, 21, after they found marijuana inside the house on Page Street near 15th, a few blocks from Temple's main campus. Pulcini was charged with narcotics possession and related offenses, and police said they believe the student was dealing drugs out of the house.
About 10 p.m. Sunday, two gunmen burst into the house, where Pulcini and three other students were, while a third man waited outside, police said. The robbers fled with the students' cellphones and between $500 and $900 in cash. During the investigation, cops seized about four ounces of weed worth about $1,200 and booked Pulcini for possession with intent to distribute.
