Pound Ridge Police Bust Man for Pot Possession

POUND RIDGE, N.Y. –  Pound Ridge arrested a Tarrytown man last week for unlawful possession of marijuana and aggravated unlicensed operation of a motor vehicle in the third degree.

While on patrol on Westchester Avenue, police observed that a vehicle driven by Manual Bastos, Jr., 31, had no registration sticker and an expired inspection sticker on the windshield. When police stopped the vehicle, Bastos produced an expired driver’s license and a valid vehicle registration. The registration sticker had not yet been affixed to the windshield. A subsequent DMV check revealed that Bastos’ license was suspended.

In a subsequent search, officers discovered the marijuana.

Bastos was also issued tickets for failure to attach stickers to the motor vehicle, operating a motor vehicle without an inspection certificate and an equipment violation. He was released on $250 bail and is due back in court on Oct. 17.
