| On Friday December 17th, 2010, just one day after local agencies arrested over thirty people suspected of possessing and distributing illegal drugs in the North Country, the Plattsburgh Police Department, in conjunction with the Adirondack Drug Task Force, made another arrest. |
Members of the Plattsburgh Police Department conducted an undercover operation in which the suspect arranged with an undercover Plattsburgh Police officer who acted as the suspect’s drug supplier, whom the suspect allegedly received shipments from in the past, to transport a quantity of marihuana from Plattsburgh to Albany for $3,000.
Officers conducted a surveillance of the arranged meeting place and soon after arrested 43 year old Stephen Zukowski who was found in possession of approximately 5.2 pounds of marihuana. He was charged with the D Felony of Criminal Possession of Marihuana Second Degree.
Zukowski was arraigned in City Court on December 18th and committed to the Clinton County Jail on $10,000 cash bail or $20,000 bond.
The investigation is continuing and more arrests are likely.
