One of Martin Scorsese's nephews has been arrested on suspicion of dealing heroin.

Frank Scorsese, whose father is the Hollywood director's brother, stands accused of selling the drug to an undercover police officer on three separate occasions, according to the New York Post.

The 39 year old, was arrested and charged after the third sale and is now facing counts for criminal possession and sale of a controlled substance.

John and Lori Santillo, who own the mechanics shop where Scorsese works, have also been taken into custody on drugs and weapons charges following a police raid on the couple's Staten Island, New York on Wednesday morning (30Apr14), when cops discovered heroin, five shotguns, two pistols and a rifle.
