MONTGOMERY – A vehicle and traffic stop on Route 208 in the Town of Montgomery led to the arrests of two men and the seizure of over 204 pounds of high-grade marijuana with a street value of over $1 million.
When State Police pulled over the vehicle driven by Anthony Donofrio, 69, of New Rochelle, they detected a strong odor of marijuana leading to a search. The drugs were found hidden in a large wooden container in the bed of the pickup truck.
