Bags of crack cocaine and cash seized by officers from the 104th Precinct on March 8 in Maspeth.

Two men were arrested for allegedly having numerous bags of crack cocaine in their possession after being pulled over by 104th Precinct officers in a Maspeth traffic stop on Thursday afternoon.

According to police, the officers stopped a vehicle on Grand Avenue near 73rd Street at approximately 3:32 p.m. on March 8. They approached the vehicle and found two men inside: Franklyn Suriel-Pena, 22, of Vernon Avenue in Brooklyn, and Anthony Frias, 21, of Troutman Street in Brooklyn.

Police said approximately 60 bags of crack cocaine were seized during the arrest, along an undetermined amount of cash. There were no details available about how the drugs were found, police said. Suriel-Pena and Frias were subsequently taken into custody.

Detective Anthony Wright and Officer Louis Marinacci, two previous recipients of the 104th Precinct “Cop of the Month” honors, were the arresting officers, according to a post on the precinct’s Twitter page.

Court records show that Suriel-Pena was charged with a traffic infraction involving an illegal signal, criminal possession of a controlled substance and criminal possession of a narcotic drug. Frias was charged with criminal possession of a controlled substance.

Both suspects were scheduled to be arraigned on March 9, according to court records.
