Sleepy Hollow police were joined by the Greenburgh Police Drug and Alcohol Task Force in arresting a 37-year-old suspect with a large quantity of heroin and pain pills and cash, with a total value of around $36,000, police said on Saturday.
Police charged Ascencion A. Jimenez of Valley Street in Sleepy Hollow at his residence about 7 a.m. on Friday, Nov. 17, according to Det. Kevin Johnson of the Irvington Police Department and the town's Drug and Alcohol Task Force.
The Sleepy Hollow Police Department and the Greenburgh task force executed a search warrant at the apartment occupied by Jimenez, following a three-month investigation of heroin sales within Sleepy Hollow and neighboring jurisdictions.
Jimenez was arrested and charged with two counts of felony third-degree criminal possession of a controlled substance, police said, and additional charges are pending.
Seized as a result of the search warrant was: $11,883.00 in cash, 538 bags of heroin, 432 Oxycodone prescription pain pills, 94 doses of Suboxone, a half-pound of marijuana -- in all a combined total of total of $36,000 worth of drugs and cash -- as well as a counterfeit Pennsylvania driver's license.
Jimenez was arraigned in Sleepy Hollow Court and sent to the Westchester County Jail with no bail. His next court appearance will be in Sleepy Hollow Criminal Court on Monday, Nov. 20.
Anyone with additional information or questions about the investigation can contact Det. Sgt. Stephen Dougherty at 914-631-0800.
