A Highway Department foreman accused of dealing drugs

A Highway Department foreman accused of dealing drugs has resigned from his job with Rockland County.

HAVERSTRAW - A former Rockland County employee accused of selling drugs out of his work truck had his court date moved in Haverstraw Town Court today.

Bernard Hughes, 55, of West Nyack, is now expected back in court on Friday.

Hughes was arrested in August by the Rockland County Drug Task Force after allegedly dealing cocaine within county lines in a county vehicle. The arrest stems from a yearlong investigation by the Rockland County Drug Task Force of a drug trafficking network allegedly headed by a Congers man.

Hughes stepped down from his six-figure position last month with the County Highway Department.

He faces seven years in prison if he is convicted of the conspiracy charges.
