Bags of prescription pills and wads of cash seized from a Flushing driver on Jan. 12.

He should have found a legal parking spot.

A driver who was caught blocking a Flushing driveway last Thursday afternoon was also found to have a large number of prescription drugs in his possession illegally, according to police.

 

Law enforcement sources said Sheng Lin, 35, was observed sitting in a white Audi vehicle that blocked a residential driveway in front of an apartment house on Union Street near 45th Avenue at 1:45 p.m. on Jan. 12.

Officers from the NYPD Queens Narcotics Squad approached Lin’s vehicle and found inside it in plain view a large quantity of controlled substances, including hundreds of alprazolam (Xanax) and oxycodone pills.

Lin was subsequently taken into custody on charges of criminal possession of a controlled substance and criminal use of drug paraphernalia, sources said. He was ordered held on $50,000 bail during arraignment in Queens Criminal Court on Friday, Jan. 13, according to court records.

Deputy Inspector Judith Harrison, commanding officer of the 109th Precinct based in Flushing, took to Twitter to commend the squad for making the bust: “Great work by Queens Narcotics for taking these illegal pills off the streets of the #109pct #SafeStreets #SafeCity.”
