A detective’s strong instincts led to the arrest of a 29-year-old Bronx man who had unprescribed Oxycontin on him and who was the subject of two outstanding burglary arrest warrants, Det. Lt. Vincent Auteri said.
While investigating another matter Friday, Feb. 18, Det. Chris Cuneo says observed an older model Porsche Cayenne in the area of a business on Orient Way and Rutherford Avenue.
Det. Cuneo ran a random license plate inquiry on the vehicle and learned the registered owner of the vehicle, Kaseem Kidd, was wanted for burglary in Middletown (N.J.) and Atlantic Highlands.
Cuneo stopped the driver and found Kidd was in it. Officers Michael Clifford and Michael Scalese assisted with the stop and arrest.
A search of Kidd upon arrest revealed he was in possession of a small amount of Oxycontin.
He was charged with possession of CDS before being released into the custody of the Middletown Police Department on the outstanding warrant.
