From the Times Ledger:
Police have charged two College Point residents in a major drug bust that recovered nearly a kilogram of cocaine, three handguns and $58,000 in cash, according to Detective Kevin O’Donnell of the 109th Precinct.
Abriel Carela, 23, and Monica Vargas, 19, were arrested at 8:07 a.m. March 4 in their home at 9-11 125th St. after an officer saw a plastic bag of cocaine on a kitchen table and a strainer containing cocaine in clear view while performing a parole visit to Carela, who has eight prior arrests, according to the Queens district attorney’s office.
Officers secured the house and obtained a search warrant, eventually recovering nearly $60,000 in cash, a .9 mm pistol, .40-caliber pistol and .45-caliber pistol, a box of ammunition, and 911 grams of cocaine, O’Donnell said.
Police also found 84 envelopes filled with heroin and more cocaine in a bedroom in the home and a safe containing cocaine and a number of prescription pills, according to the DA’s office.
