Police checking in on a White Plains bar early Sunday morning caught a man using cocaine in a bathroom, according to an arrest report.
Joseph Cipriano, 26, of 118 Ridgeway Ave., White Plains, was arrested at about 1:37 a.m. in Black Bear Saloon on Mamaroneck Ave. Police say Cipriano was acting suspiciously in a bathroom stall inside the bar. The White Plains man could be heard sniffing something in the stall, which police believe was consistent with using cocaine, according to an arrest report.
Police asked Cipriano if he was carrying any drugs and he handed over a cigarette box containing about 700 milligrams of cocaine, according to an arrest report. He was arrested at the scene.
Cipriano was charged with seventh-degree criminal possession of a controlled substance, a misdemeanor, and released on $100 bail.
