Undercover officers were watching the area around 8 o’clock last night when they spotted and stopped a car on Kipp Avenue driven by Nelson Quesada-Aristy, 23, Police Chief Michael Foligno said this morning.
They immediately noticed a strong odor of raw marijuana and turned up the pills, in a clear plastic bag, along with the pot and cash, he said.
The officers arrested both Quesada-Aristy and 19-year-old Blanca DeGregorio of Elmwood Park on various drug possession charges with the intent to distribute.
Both were released without bail pending court hearings.
