On Sept. 24, three New York men were taken into police custody after a search warrant was executed at a residence in New City. The accused 22-year-old, 26-year-old and 32-year-old men were each charged for criminal drug possession. Police say the 26-year-old man is also facing charges for criminal possession of drug paraphernalia and possession of a controlled substance.
Prior to the raid, Clarkstown Police Department had reportedly been investigating information they had received about possible drug activity going on at a residence on West Clarkstown Road. During the search of the home, officers allegedly discovered marijuana, suboxone, drug paraphernalia and 240 wax envelopes containing heroin. According to the Rockland County District Attorney, authorities are using social media and other intelligence gathering techniques in an effort to identify where drugs are coming from and where major suppliers are located.
