POUND RIDGE, N.Y. – A large quantity of heroin, hypodermic needles, two guns, bullets, a switchblade and a handful of watches and gold jewelry were allegedly found in the home of a Pound Ridge man, police said.

Kyle Caruso, 29, was riding in the passenger seat of a car driven by Jonathan Farkas, whom Pound Ridge Police Chief David Ryan said was pulled over for two traffic violations Friday and charged with possession of heroin and hypodermic needles in the car.

Farkas had an active warrant out of New York City for possession of a weapon, and Caruso was on probation in Westchester County for prior convictions for heroin possession, Ryan said. As a result, Pound Ridge police, assisted by probation officers, later searched Caruso’s apartment and recovered:

  • 125 hypodermic needles
  • Several switch blade knives
  • One high capacity nine millimeter magazine restricted for law enforcement use only
  • 300 glassine envelopes
  • Two simulated nine millimeter handguns with associated magazines
  • A large amount of drug paraphernalia
  • A variety of prescription drugs
  • A small amount of marijuana
  • Drug paraphernalia. 

In addition, a sum of jewelry, watches and other items were recovered, which Caruso admitted he stole, Ryan said. Caruso also told police he uses 30 bags of heroin a day, according to the police chief.
Caruso was charged with:

  • Two counts of third-degree criminal possession of a weapon, a felony
  • Six counts of criminal possession of a controlled substance, a misdemeanor
  • One count of criminal possession of hypodermic instruments, a misdemeanor
  • One count of fourth-degree criminal possession of a weapon, a misdemeanor

He was arraigned in Pound Ridge Town Court and remanded to the Westchester County jail on $10,000 cash bail or $20,000 bond. Farkas was released on bail, but immediately re-arrested on the New York City warrant and transported by the NYPD early Monday morning.

“The investigation continues as to the source of the heroin, prescription drugs and other materials seized as well as determining the origin of the jewelry and other items recovered,” Ryan wrote in a press release.

Pound Ridge police are working with the Westchester County Department of Probation.

Caruso is due back in court March 3.

Great job but I have one question. What is a simulated nine millimeter handgun? I own several weapons and have never heard of this.

Kudos to the men and women of Pound Ridge police force and the probation officers who handled the case of Caruso.

Great job once again by the Pound Ridge cops. Take it to the next step though. This heroin problem is becoming epidemic. Don't stop with the users. Go after those that are bringing it into the town. These people are destroying lives and need to be caught.

Today no town is totally "safe" -- only the diligence and dedication of our law enforcement department gives us that peace of mind. THANK YOU!

Please remember to support our first responders when it comes to donating to the yearly fund raising drives.

I love my town and love Chief Ryan, great dedication! Please continue to kick butt, nobody better come to our town to corrupt it

Amen!

These people are sick. I for one appreciate all the work our local police officers are doing to crack down on the heroin dealers and users.
