White Plains police officers in an unmarked vehicle witnessed a clandestine downtown drug deal that led to two arrests with felony charges, authorities said.
Two officers spotted a man in blue jeans and a black jacket standing at the corner of South Lexington Avenue and Denison Street this past Sunday at 11:45 p.m.—a man they recognized from past incidents, authorities said.
Police said the man met a second, also familiar to the cops, and watched as the first man forked over a small package in exchange for paper money, while both men looked around nervously.
Shortly after the exchange, police caught up with the first man, identified as 28-year-old Bradley Clymer. Police said they found a Ziploc bag containing 18 smaller bags of crack-cocaine, totalling 2.3 grams.
Police arrested Clymer and the second man, Dexter Davis, and charged both with varying degrees on criminal possession of a controlled substance, felonies.
