The Greenburgh Drug and Alcohol Task Force reported to Tarrytown Police on Oct. 15 at 4:20 p.m. that they had stopped a car with NY plates on South Broadway near Kraft Foods.
The Greenburgh officer had placed the car’s driver under arrest and was requesting a marked unit from Tarrytown. He said one passenger of the car had fled the scene and Greenburgh force members were chasing the passenger on foot.
The suspect apparently threw items from his pocket during the chase. He was soon caught and a quantity of drugs was found in the woods south of Kraft. All three car occupants were then successfully arrested and transported to Tarrytown headquarters for further investigation.
The men were found to have one collapsible baton considered commonly possessed among them, said Lieutenant William Herguth, so all faced a weapon's charge.
Defendants Lee H. Swift, 21, of Tarrytown, and Chanel Albizua, 18, of New Rochelle, were both charged with with criminal possession of a weapon in the fourth and criminal possession of marijuana in the fifth, and released with a court date of Oct. 17.
Defendant Edward J. Heiss, 20, of Dobbs Ferry, pictured here and the one who tried to flee, was charged with criminal posession of controlled substance in the third, resisting arrest, possession of a weapon in the fourth and criminal possession of marijuana in the fifth. Heiss was arraigned and transported to County Jail with cash bail of $5,000 and court date of Oct. 17.
The car was impounded by Stiloski’s and held at police headquarters. One officer reported sustained an injury to his left foot while arresting the man who fled.
