Two men are facing weapon and drug charges after being busted during a stop by New York State Police troopers in Westchester.
Troopers stopped a vehicle on I-87 in Greenburgh shortly before 9:15 p.m. on Saturday, June 23, when they spotted a motorist committing multiple vehicle and traffic violations on the roadway.
According to police, during the subsequent stop, troopers were able to establish probable cause to search the vehicle and its occupants - Vermont resident Craig Nugent, Jr., 42 and Brooklyn resident Zaquikon Roy, 30 - which led to the seizure of a loaded handgun, approximately 1.45 grams of Suboxone, a gram of marijuana and more than eight grams of Naloxone, which the two men were allegedly in possession of.
Both men were arrested and charged with a felony count of second-degree criminal possession of a weapon. Nugent was additionally charged with unlawful possession of marijuana and several vehicle and traffic violations. Roy was also charged with two counts of seventh-degree criminal possession of a controlled substance and two counts of possessing a controlled substance in a non-original container.
Following arraignment in White Plains City Court, both Nugent and Roy were remanded to the Westchester County Jail without bail. Both men are due back in court on June 26 to answer the charges.
