Fall River Mayor Jasiel Correia, who's already under indictment for wire and tax fraud, was arrested this morning for allegedly conspiring to extort hundreds of thousands of dollars in bribes from four marijuana vendors.

Correia also allegedly extorted a building owner for cash and a Rolex watch in exchange for permits, and demanded that his then-chief of staff, Genoveva Andrade, kick back half of her city salary to him.
