The various narcotics and cash police recovered during a traffic stop-turned-drug bust in Richmond Hill on Jan. 17.

He’s going to regret not seeing that stop sign.

A Woodhaven man who was pulled over Tuesday afternoon in Richmond Hill for a traffic violation was found to have a stash of illegal drugs — including crack/cocaine and marijuana — and a wad of cash, police announced.

 

Law enforcement sources said Juan Bello, 29, was observed by 102nd Precinct officers acting suspiciously as he operated a 2002 Honda Accord at the corner of Myrtle Avenue and Park Lane South just before 5 p.m. on Jan. 17.

Police trailed Bello’s vehicle to the intersection of 108th Street and Atlantic Avenue, where it was stopped after officers spotted the car failing to make a full stop at a stop sign.

While questioning the driver, authorities said, the officers observed a strong scent of marijuana and conducted a search. Police recovered an undetermined quantity of marijuana as well as crack/cocaine and oxycodone pills. Some of the drugs were packaged in small plastic envelopes.

Officers also found approximately $5,000 in cash in Bello’s possession, police sources said.

Bello was variously charged with criminal possession of marijuana and criminal possession of a controlled substance.

“Great work by our Park Detail Officers! They recovered these drugs and currency from a vehicle,” Deputy Inspector Deodat Urprasad, commanding officer of the 102nd Precinct, said in a tweet about the arrest.
