A traffic stop for speeding turned out to be much more than Somers State Police expected Saturday on I-684 in the Town of Bedford.
Found in the vehicle, driven by Shenika Edwards, 29, of Brooklyn, were over 125 “rocks” of crack cocaine, nearly 250 decks of heroin, a marijuana cigarette and brass knuckles.
Edwards was charged with two counts of criminal possession of a controlled substance in third degree (Class B felony), criminal possession of a weapon in the fourth degree (Class A misdemeanor) and unlawful possession of marijuana (violation).
A passenger, who had no identification but represented himself as Clarence Moss, 32, of Brooklyn, was charged with two counts of criminal possession of a controlled substance and criminal possession of a weapon. A check of his fingerprints revealed Moss was wanted by the Philadelphia Police Department for attempted murder and aggravated assault for a shooting incident that occurred in July in which he used the name Brandon McCall.
Edwards and Moss were arraigned in Town of North Castle Court and remanded to Westchester County Jail on no bail. In addition, Moss was being held for Pennsylvania authorities as a fugitive from justice
