Two Bronx men were arrested this week after a four-month investigation into cocaine sales in New Rochelle, the Westchester County Police Department said.
After receiving information about drug sales in New Rochelle, Westchester County's narcotics unit sent undercover officers to purchase cocaine from the two alleged dealers, cops said.
Louie Gonzalez, 33, was picked up on Thursday at 8:45 a.m. in front of his home on Tomlinson Avenue in the Bronx. He was charged with four counts of third-degree felony criminal sale of a controlled substance and four counts of third-degree possession.
William Luque, 35, of Halperin Avenue, was arrested Tuesday at 1:40 p.m. on Nardozzi Place, not far from D'Onofrio Park and a busy shopping center that includes Costco. Luque had 20 small bags of cocaine on him when detectives searched him, police said. Luque was charged with two counts of third-degree criminal sale of a controlled substance, and one count of third-degree criminal possession, all felonies.
Gonzalez and Luque were arraigned in New Rochelle City Court. Luque was sent to Westchester County Jail; Gonzalez was released after posting $10,000 bail. They're scheduled to return to court on May 24. Neither man had an attorney listed in jail or court documents.
