Port Chester Police: Broad Street Drug Probe Leads to 3 Arrests

Raid completes undercover investigation.

Three Port Chester residents face drug charges after a six-month investigation of cocaine sales at a building on Broad Street in Port Chester, according to Port Chester Police.

Lt. James Ladeairous said an undercover operation conducted with the assistance of Westchester County Police culminated with a raid on an apartment at 30 Broad St. at about 4:53 p.m. Friday. The raid uncovered cocaine and drug-related materials including scales and plastic bags used for packaging.

The investigation started in July 2012 and included six drug purchases. Ladeairous said the ground-floor business at 30 Broad St. was not involved in the investigation, with drug sales taking place upstairs in an apartment.

Charged are:

- Neftali Gonzalez-Mercado, 30, of 30 Broad St.

- Daniel Becerril, 28, of 30 Broad St.

- Ellias Maya, 36, of 75 Traverse Ave., Port Chester

All three are charged with third-degree and fifth-degree criminal possession of a controlled substance.  Ladeairous said all three are expected to face additional charges.

All three face hearings in Port Chester Village Court.

Interesting assumption, Jessie, given that the last time I checked, almost no one had the nerve to post under their real name - including you - so how can you be sure? Of course, making a blanket statement like yours says some interesting things about you, too. But I do believe the postings on this topic are more than a little unbalanced, more than a little too much of the same anti-immigrant hysteria that seems to come out from people who have too little useful to do with their time.

Jessie, Check out the Police and Fire section of the PC Patch and you'll see 90%+ of the people committing crimes in PC are latino. It's not being racist it's just the facts.
