According to a report from the New York State Police, Troopers pulled over 35-year-old Noval Baez of Danbury for a traffic violation at about 2:15 AM on Saturday (December 9) when they say they smelled the strong odor of alcohol. In addition to that, Troopers say that they noticed that the passenger, 49-year-old Scott Craigue of Brookfield, appeared to have cocaine residue on his nose, lap, and seat.
A search of the vehicle turned up over nine grams of cocaine powder, according to police.
