Jennifer Tzar, Photographer, Arrested for Having 10 lbs. of Weed in her Apartment


On Friday morning, fire marshals reportedly discovered 10 lbs. of marijuana while searching photographer Jennifer Tzar’s SoHo apartment. The Daily News says that Tzar, who has been featured in Rolling Stone, Spin and LIFE, “was arrested at the scene.” The search originally commenced in an effort to discover the cause of a 3-alarm fire at 68 Thompson Street, but instead it yielded a head stash weighing as much as a cesarean-delivered baby.

Jennifer Tzar’s website lists her photography as “Offbeat and arresting…in the realm of magical realism, project defiance and individuality.” We contacted Tzar for comment but were unable to reach her. We will update this space pending any communication.

We spoke with the Fire Department, who told us the fire resulted in 11 minor injuries, ten of which were sustained by firemen. The cause of the blaze is still undetermined.

The Fire Department had no comment on Jennifer Tzar’s arrest, nor did they mention how sticky this alleged giant stash of bud is.
