Four teens are facing felony charges in connection to a stolen car. Westchester County police say an officer tried to stop a car Saturday but the driver wouldn't pull over. The car later crashed on the exit ramp to I-684 northbound just outside the county airport. The suspects fled the scene but a police sergeant and bloodhound were able to track them down. The teens were arrested and charged with felony criminal possession.
Rockland County investigators are being credited for their role in a massive drug bust in the Bronx. Federal officials say more than 100 pounds of cocaine, fentanyl and other drugs were found at a pizzeria. Officials say $4 million worth of drugs were found inside the pizzeria directly across the street from an elementary school. Three suspects were arrested.
Middletown police seized a large supply of illegal marijuana. Detectives say an employee at Splash Infused on Wickham Avenue wouldn't let officers in for a fire inspection last week. Police then obtained a search warrant and say they found almost 100 pounds of marijuana and 3,000 edible products. Employee Kenneth Ortiz was arrested and charged with criminal possession of cannabis.
