White Plains Police Seize Oxycodone, Heroin

WHITE PLAINS, N.Y. -- A White Plains man's nervous looks before and after a quick stop inside public housing at 1:30 a.m. Friday led to an oxycodone bust, police said.

When Tony Carey, 48, left 33 Fisher Ave., he told officers he was inside looking for a friend whom he planned to accompany on a dog walk. However, police said, the resident in the apartment number that Carey gave had never heard of him.

Police arrested Carey and found an unlabeled bottle with 23 pills marked "M523" and two round pills with "WATSON932" printed on them. Officers said all 25 oxycodone pills collectively weighed 0.45502 grams.

Carey was charged with fourth-degree criminal possession of a controlled substance, a felony; and third-degree criminal trespass, a misdemeanor.

The following items were also reported by White Plains police:

- Heroin Arrest: The narcotics unit arrested Clifton Monk, 62, a homeless White Plains man. Police said he had two decks of heroin labeled with a "wait for me" tag. Monk was charged Thursday with seventh-degree criminal possession of a controlled substance, a misdemeanor.

- ID Theft: A North Bergen, N.J., man was caught opening a credit card in the name of a South Carolina resident and charging $4,780.42 on it, police said. Gary Coichy, 30, was arrested Thursday and charged with second-degree forgery, first-degree ID theft and grand larceny, all felonies; and possession of stolen property, a misdemeanor.
