New York State Police arrested two men last week on the Sprain Brook Parkway in Greenburgh after discovering 800 grams of rock cocaine and three pounds of marijuana in their car.
The arrest occurred at about 4:40 p.m. on Jan. 9 after police pulled over the pair for allegedly driving 75 mph in a 55 mph zone, according to police.
While investigating the traffic stop, police discovered that the driver was operating the car with a suspended license, and a state police dog detected drugs in the vehicle. A search was conducted, and officers found “two hidden hydraulic compartments located at the rear passenger and drivers side panels” that allegedly contained the rock cocaine and the marijuana, according to police.
Arrested were Louis A. Crespo, 30, of Yonkers and Michael Figueroa, 28, of the Bronx. Both were charged with Criminal Possession of a Controlled Substance in the 1st Degree, a Class A Felony, and Criminal Possession of Marihuana in the 2nd Degree, a Class D Felony. State police did not disclose which man was driving the car.
The two were arraigned in the Town of Greenburgh Court and remanded to the Westchester County Jail without bail.
