Westchester traffic stop leads to seizure of 17.5 ounces of cocaine

A Westchester traffic stop has led to the arrest of two Massachusetts men found with 17.5 ounces of cocaine on Saturday, February 28, according to LoHud.

The two men were allegedly stopped by police for a cracked windshield, among other violations. The driver did not have a valid license, and a search revealed twelve bottles that contained a white substance that tested positive for cocaine.

The two were arraigned in Harrison Town Court and were booked to the Westchester County jail over charges of first-degree criminal possession of a controlled substance and third-degree criminal possession of a controlled substance with intent to sell.
