White Plains Men Charged With Marijuana Possession

WHITE PLAINS, N.Y. – A pair of White Plains men were arrested and charged with smoking marijuana, according to a police report.

Police patrolling the area near Fountain Park saw Anthony Ford, 41, and Rahmeque Nelson, 19, smoking from a brown, hand-rolled cigarette they believed to contain marijuana, police said.

When police approached the two men, who live together on DeKalb Avenue, they began to walk away, but police stopped them and Nelson dropped the cigarette and tried to step on it, police said. Police retrieved it and noticed it had what they believed to be marijuana, police said.

Both were arrested and taken to police headquarters, where a search revealed a clear plastic bag inside Nelson’s left jacket pocket, police said.

Both were held for court.
