The nephew of famed film director Martin Scorsese was arrested Wednesday for allegedly dealing heroin on Staten Island.

Prosecutors say Frank Scorsese sold heroin to an undercover officer several times last month.

He was arrested at a Staten Island auto body shop where he worked.

Also arrested were the shop's owner, John Santillo, and his wife, Lori Santillo.

Prosecutors say Santillo was involved in some of Scorsese's heroin sales to police officers.

Police found drugs and several guns at the Santillo home, according to the criminal complaint.

All three defendants were arraigned in Staten Island Criminal Court on Thursday and pleaded not guilty.
