A 10-month investigation into cocaine sales in Freeport led to an arrest and the seizure of cocaine, marijuana, drug paraphernalia and firearms — both handguns and assault rifles, State Police said on Friday.

Brian J. Crook, 33, of Freeport, was charged with felonies: criminal sale of a controlled substance and criminal possession of a weapon, police said.

Crook was arraigned Friday at Nassau County First District Court in Hempstead and held on bail of $50,000 cash or $100,000 bond, according to online court records. His next court appearance is Wednesday.

His attorney, Michael Lawrence Soshnick of Mineola, did not return a message seeking comment Friday night.
