Three Hampton Bays men were arrested last week in a drug bust orchestrated by the East End Drug Task Force, according to Southampton Police.
Police arrested Ronald Jiminez Sr., 63, on felony drug charges last Thursday and two other men were charged with violations of unlawful possession of marijuana.
According to police, a search warrant was executed at 30 Springville Rd., in response to investigations concerning ongoing drug sales on the East End. Quantities of cocaine, marijuana and drug paraphernalia were reportedly recovered and seized, however no charges related to drug sales were immediately handed out.
Jiminez was arrested on two felony counts of criminal possession of a controlled substance in the third degree, a misdemeanor charge of criminal possession of a controlled substance in the seventh degree, and a violation charge of unlawful possession of marijuana. He was held overnight and arraigned the next morning.
