A Manhattan pot dealer and rock-star wannabe is facing 2½ years in prison after keeping refrigerators jam-packed with big bags of weed in his Murray Hill apartment.
Authorities also found a two-page letter from a fellow criminal acquaintance - full of juicy tips on how to not get arrested while dealing dope.
Peter Dagostino, a 56-year-old musician and recording-studio owner. Dagostino found marijuana, rather than music, the key to big bucks.
Dagostino was busted on April 19, 2006, at the $1,000-a-month studio apartment that he rents at 43 E. 20th St.
DEA agents found 88 pounds of pot wrapped in bundles and stuffed in several fridges.
They also found $65,000 in cash in the apartment, and they froze another $325,000 he had in bank accounts, according to prosecutors.
Dagostino, who remains free on $25,000 bail, pleaded guilty June 22 in Manhattan Supreme Court to possession of marijuana and agreed to cough up about $378,000 in drug money and vacate the Murray Hill apartment. He will be sentenced Sept. 24.
