WHITE PLAINS, N.Y. – White Plains police K-9 “Justice” sniffed out seven grams of crack cocaine in a car during a traffic stop, leading to the arrest of two White Plains men, police said.

K-9 Justice indicated the presence of a narcotic in the middle of the bench seat in the 1993 Ford pickup F150.
