During a traffic stop, police discovered two New York men were driving with five pounds of marijuana and 10 jars of THC oil in their car, all worth around $400,000, authorities said.
On Monday, police arrested Kyle E. Hilgendorg, 20, and Vincent Finizio, 28, both of Howard Beach, New York, in East Rutherford and charged them with possession with intent to distribute marijuana and THC oil, Bergen County Prosecutor Mark Musella said in a statement. Both men were being held in the Bergen County jail pending a court appearance, the statement said.
On Monday, officers from the Prosecutor’s Office and the East Rutherford Police pulled the duo over in East Rutherford, at which point a Bergen County Sheriff’s Office K-9 sniffed out narcotics, the statement said. When officers searched the car, they found five pounds of marijuana and 10 mason jars filled with THC concentrated oil, approximately 4,500 grams, the statement said.
According to the statement, the amount of THC oil seized by police could produce “thousands of THC vape cartridges.” All said, the marijuana and THC oil found had a street value of approximately $400,000, the statement said.
