Anti-Crime Unit Recovers Lots of Green

By Brian Magoolaghan

The four Rockaway men who face drug charges after officers from the 100 Precinct Anti-Crime Unit busted them inside a backyard shed that contained 2 pounds of marijuana, cash and drug paraphernalia, are due back in court next week.

Kelcey D. Prince, Samuel M. Kingston, Duran Wright and Jose Gautien Jr. are charged with criminal possession of marijuana and two counts of criminally using drug paraphernalia, according to court records. The defendants are all between the ages of 20 and 30 years old and reside within the 100 Precinct, according to police.

The Anti-Crime unit was investigating a burglary at 611 Beach 64 Street on May 5 when officers saw, in plain view, what they believed to be marijuana inside a large white and tan shed in the backyard. Police secured a search warrant for the shed, which they used the following day to make their bust. The unit recovered the marijuana, which was stored inside a Timberland shoebox, more than $1,100 in cash, a scale and numerous plastic bags.

The men were arraigned on May 6 before Queens Criminal Court Judge Lenore Gerald who set bail for Prince at $2,500 and $1,500 for Wright, according to Queens District Attorney Richard A. Brown’s office. Kingston and Gautien were released on their own recognizance.
