A woman stopped for speeding in Farmingdale Tuesday had three guns in her car, including two in a hidden compartment, Nassau police said.
Special operations officers on patrol tried to pull over a red Honda Accord on South Front Street shortly after midnight, but the driver, Yulisa R. Almonte, did not stop until she reached Denton Place, less than a mile away, police said.
Officers detected a strong odor of marijuana inside the car and noticed a packet of Suboxone, a drug used to fight opiate addiction, on top of the center console, police said.
Almonte, 24, of Copiague, was arrested, police said, and afterward officers found a loaded .40-caliber Glock inside the console and a loaded revolver and a .22 caliber handgun in a hidden compartment. They also found a pill believed to be oxycodone and more Suboxone, police said.
Almonte was arraigned Tuesday on three counts of second-degree criminal possession of a weapon, third-degree criminal possession of a weapon and three counts of seventh-degree criminal possession of a controlled substance. One of the weapons charges accuses her of defacing a gun, according to online court records.
Bail was set at $20,000 bond or $10,000 cash.
