An earlier report misstated the value of heroin found and has been corrected.
GREENBURGH, N.Y. – Three people were arrested and charged Tuesday after they were found with $20 to $25 thousand worth of heroin in the truck of a car, Greenburgh Police said.
Tory Keyser, 25, of Vermont, Thomas Muske, 30, of Vermont, and Wilbert Taylor, 27, of Brooklyn, were charged with two counts of third-degree criminal possession of a controlled substance, a felony, according to police.
A surveillance team was working in a gas station parking lot on South Central Avenue near Yonkers on Tuesday around 3 p.m. when a woman was observed getting out a Vermont-registered vehicle and going into a bathroom, Greenburgh police said.
Officers later observed the woman coming out of the bathroom with a hypodermic needle sticking out of her front pants' pocket and getting back into the car, police said.
Police followed the car and stopped it on the northbound lane of the Sprain Brook Parkway near the Dobbs Ferry Road exit. Officers found three hypodermic needles on the floor inside the car, police said.
After interviewing the three occupants, Greenburgh Police said they found 980 decks of heroin in the truck. The street value is estimated between $20 and $25 thousand, police said.
Keyser, Muske and Taylor were arraigned in Greenburgh Town Court and taken to the Westchester County Jail. They are due back in court on April 12.
