RAMAPO, N.Y. -- A Spring Valley man faces drug charges after he was arrested Wednesday in the Hillcrest area of town, Ramapo police said.

The unnamed 26-year-old suspect was sitting in a parked car on Sebec Lane about 7 p.m. when an officer noticed a strong odor of marijuana coming from the vehicle, police said.

Two plastic bags of marijuana were recovered at the scene, police said.

The man was charged with unlawful possession of marijuana and ordered to appear in Ramapo Town Court later this month, police said.

Police responded to a total of 148 calls on Wednesday, including nine medical emergencies and 11 alarm activations.

They investigated 10 motor vehicle accidents at the following locations: four in Monsey, two in Viola, one in Hillcrest, one in South Spring Valley, one in New City and one in Airmont.

No one was injured in any of the accidents, and two involved hit-and-runs, police said.
