An 81-year-old man who was convicted in the 1970s killing of a nephew of notorious mob boss Carlo Gambino has been arrested in Wyoming on drug charges.
Henry Sentner, of Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, was pulled over Sunday on Interstate 80 in southeast Wyoming by a state trooper for speeding.
Charging documents say about 35 pounds (16 kilograms) of marijuana was found in Sentner’s vehicle.
District Attorney Jeremiah Sandburg said Sentner’s “colorful” past includes a 15-year prison sentence for the 1972 killing of Emanuel Gambino.
“In the time that I’ve both lived here and been district attorney, this is kind of unique to have somebody of this seasoned, as it were, to still be engaged in this conduct at his age,” Sandburg said in an interview.
Sentner is charged with possession of marijuana with intent to deliver, felony marijuana possession and speeding. Sentner was released
