A Johnson City Man is Accused of Dealing Drugs From His Car
A Johnson City man is facing charges for allegedly dealing cocaine and marijuana out of his car after being involved in a hit and run crash.
Broome County Sheriff’s officials investigated a hit and run on Watson Boulevard December 26th in which a vehicle had hit a fire hydrant, knocking it over.
Witnesses provided authorities with a description of the vehicle.
Deputies yesterday found the suspect vehicle and 28 year old David Smith parked on North Harrison Avenue in Johnson City.
The authorities say they watched Smith and say they saw what appeared to be the man selling narcotics to other motorists.
Upon approaching Smith’s car, officials say they saw him shoving something under the passenger seat.
Smith was reportedly found to be in possession of 61 individually wrapped quarter-gram packets of cocaine, 26 wrapped packages of half-gram parcels of marijuana and $262.
Smith is charged with two felony counts of criminal possession of a controlled substance with intent to sell, misdemeanor marijuana possession and traffic violation counts of leaving the scene of an accident and moving from a lane unsafely.
Smith was sent to the Broome County Jail.
