WEST NEW YORK – On February 5, 2015, at around 9:40 p.m. police responded to report of a man suspiciously handing a package to someone in a silver Honda on 56th St. in West New York, officials said.
When police arrived they observed a silver Honda parked and approached the vehicle. Cynthia Vasquez of Guttenberg was in the driver seat of the vehicle, which was emitting a strong marijuana odor. Also in the vehicle were Fernando Valdez and Chris Fernandez of West New York and one other unknown male, presumably an underage male.
Upon being searched, police allegedly found marijuana in the pocket of Fernando A. Valdez, 18, of West New York.
Valdez was arrested and charged with possession of marijuana under 50 grams, possession of marijuana with intent to distribute, possession of marijuana within 1,000 feet of a school, possession of marijuana within 500 feet of a public park, and possession of drug paraphernalia.
