A Woodside resident was nabbed Wednesday on drug charges after the police stopped his vehicle on 43rd Avenue, according to the NYPD.

Omar Carbajal, who lives on 50 Street, was driving on 43rd Avenue at about 10 pm when the police noticed he ignored a stop sign at 38th Street.

The police pulled him over in Sunnyside, according to the NYPD, and discovered that he was driving with a suspended license and that his 2011 Jeep Grand Cherokee smelled of marijuana.

Carbajal, 29, was arrest for driving with a suspended license and taken to the 108 Precinct in Long Island City. When the police conducted a standard search of his vehicle they discovered 2 ounces of Phencyclidine (PCP) in the trunk.

The precinct then requested that its canine unit take a look through the vehicle and the dog smelled drugs in the center console. After getting a warrant, the police said they discovered 5 ounces of cocaine, more than 8 ounces of marijuana and 60 amphetamine pills in the console.

People do not be so naive. The police know who these people are. They saw their target, pulled him over and lucky for them; found probable cause. This was not a random stop, he probably did not run the stop sign. Lucky for us those hard drugs are off the street. Sad they had to take the marijuana though.


I have a question: I saw a man on a bike spraying a dot on various sewers along 43rd avenue. I was this legit or some how connected with drugs?

How do you know who the “violators” are?
How about sobriety tests for all the drunk cops who stumble of PJ Lehey’s down the block from the 108th as they drive out to Long Island on the LIE?


So, report them. If you know they are drunk, report them, and if they walk, pursue further…Sounds like you pare pretty sure they drive drunk.

I think above poster was talking about stopping and searching traffic violators, obviously you missed that part. I am all for that, if anyone is breaking one law, it’s more than likely they are breaking other laws, minor or major, or they are drunk/high/etc.

I don’t know the blog editor mentioned marijuana smell, I guess he wanted to stir up some controversy, such as most weed smokers are pot heads and it’s very likely they also do other drugs.. Yes, most likely that’s the case but that’s the not the problem is. The problem is dope head junkies dealing in our back yards and walking around our streets. Most of the time they are on bikes actually not cars, it’s easier to access and they don’t draw as much attention.


I know quite a few people who smoke weed once in a while, but none of them use illegal drugs. You sound pretty ignorant when it comes to that subject. They’re on bikes? Oh please, Lord help us from the know-nothings with internet access.
