Two Men Charged By Port Chester Police In Suspected Heroin Deal

PORT CHESTER, N.Y. -- Two men were arrested Monday and charged with drug possession after police interrupted a suspected heroin deal.

At about 3:50 p.m., members of the Port Chester Police Department Narcotics Squad, working with the Westchester County Police Narcotics Unit, arrested a Bronx man and a New Rochelle man.

Detectives were investigating reports of drug activity in the area of Traverse Avenue. Shortly after arriving, the officers observed a man enter a mini-van and engage in what appeared to be a drug transaction with the driver of the vehicle.

Further investigation uncovered 40 small bags of heroin and about $5,000 in cash, police said.

The van's driver, Victor Carrion, 44, of the Bronx, was arrested on felony charges of third-degree criminal sale of a controlled substance and third-degree criminal possession of a controlled substance.

The van's passenger, Eugene Rodrigues, 56, of New Rochelle was arrested on a misdemeanor charge of seventh-degree criminal possession of a controlled substance.
