PUTNAM COUNTY, N.Y. --  Putnam County deputies recently nabbed a Bronx man for possession of heroin while he was parked at a Southeast service station, according to Sheriff Donald B. Smith.

On Saturday, Sept. 24, members of the Sheriff’s Department Narcotics Enforcement Unit were conducting ongoing checks of reported suspicious activity at a Southeast service station when they encountered Jeffery Gomez, 27, in the side parking area acting in an unusual manner, Smith said.

The deputies began talking with Gomez, and during a field interview and investigation found that he was there to sell drugs, police said.

During a search, police found Gomez had a package containing 40 baggies of heroin and 34 alprazolam pills. In addition, he possessed $600 in cash and several cell phones, Smith added.

Gomez was charged with two counts of felony criminal possession of a controlled substance and is being held at the Putnam County Correctional Facility in lieu of $15,000 cash bail.

If found guilty, Gomez could face up to 25 years in jail and a fine of up to $30,000.
