DUTCHESS COUNTY, N.Y. -- Two teens were nabbed for cocaine possession following a traffic stop early Monday in Red Hook, said the Dutchess County Sheriff’s Office.

David Chen, 19, of Action, Mass., and Eric Diaz, 18, New York City,  where charged with felony drug possession when the vehicle they were traveling in failed to dim their lights to oncoming traffic around 2 a.m., said Capt. John Watterson. 

During the stop, deputies discover the two, both passengers in the vehicle, were in possession of cocaine and taken into custody, Watterson said.

The driver, Kyle Davis, 21, of Charleston, S.C., was also charged with possession of a small amount of marijuana, and a traffic violation, he added 

 All three were released on appearance tickets after being processed, and are scheduled to appear in court on March 23, Watterson said.
