ROCKLAND COUNTY, N.Y. -- A Spring Valley officer on patrol nabbed a local man Sunday for possession of cocaine with intent to sell after spotting him sitting in his car on Main Street, said Spring Valley Police.

Oscar A. Molina-Landaverde of Spring Valley was spotted by the officer sitting in his vehicle at 288 N Main St., with a small green bag containing a white powder on his lap, said Officer Matthew Galli.

When Molina-Landaverde saw the officer, he attempted to conceal the bag. The officer’s investigation led to the recovery of 18 Ziploc bags containing a white powdery substance, and four foil packets containing a white powdery substance, Galli said.

The substance later tested positive for cocaine, he added.

The New York State Police K-9 Unit assisted in the search of the vehicle.

Molina-Landaverde was processed at police headquarters and charged with possession with intent to sell and criminal possession of a controlled substance more than 500 milligrams.
