A routine traffic stop for a vehicle violation in Suffern led to a felony charge for a Rockland County man who was in possession of cocaine, police said.
Officers on patrol from the Ramapo Police Department conducted a traffic stop on North Airmont Road on Monday afternoon, following the violation. During the stop, officers reported that they located a small bag that contained an estimated 700 mg of cocaine on the driver.
The 21-year-old driver - whose name was not released by police - was subsequently arrested and charged with a felony count of fifth-degree criminal possession of a controlled substance and his vehicle was impounded. Following arraignment, the suspect posted bail and is due back in court on March 1 to answer the charge.
