Police officers Christopher Valand and Kenneth Vencak were honored as Cops of the Month by the 102nd Precinct Community Council after a major narcotics bust in Woodhaven.

On Wednesday, January 9 the two officers noticed a dispute inside a car at the intersection of 85th Street  and 88th Avenue. The officers approached the vehicle after one suspect tried to get rid of illegal substances.

The pair recovered about 100 decks of heroin from  the vehicle, and later found an additional 796 envelopes of the drug inside the car. One of the suspects had been arrested no less than 12 times, according  to Commanding Officer Captain Henry Sautner.
