A Pennsylvania man had more than a kilogram of what appeared to be cocaine in the parking lot of a Massapequa mall, Nassau police said Tuesday.
Narcotics and vice squad detectives said they found the drugs on Luis Ruiz-Moreta, 52, who was behind the wheel of a Toyota Camry about 6 p.m. May 18 in the parking lot outside Dick’s Sporting Goods at the Westfield Sunrise Mall.
He was arraigned May 19 on charges of first- and third-degree criminal possession of a controlled substance, both felonies. Ruiz-Moreta, of Dublin, Pennsylvania, was released Thursday on $200,000 bail, online records show.
His attorney did not immediately return a call Tuesday evening.
