A Mount Kisco woman was arrested on Monday morning after she accepted a delivery of seven ounces of cocaine at her Boltis Street home.

Evelin Rivera, 34, was taken into custody at 9:55 a.m. after she accepted a package, which contained several hardcover books and other items. The cocaine was concealed in thin envelopes placed within the front and rear covers of the hardcover books. Additional details regarding the delivery are being withheld due to an ongoing investigation.

The cocaine has an estimated street value of $5,600.

Investigators from the Westchester County Department of Public Safety, the Mount Kisco Police Department and the federal Department of Homeland Security had learned that a package containing the cocaine would be delivered to the home on Monday morning. The three agencies conducted the joint investigation.

Rivera was charged with second-degree criminal possession of a controlled substance. She was booked at county police headquarters in Hawthorne and arraigned in Mount Kisco Village Court on Monday.  She is being held without bail at the Westchester County Jail in Valhalla.
