One Queens man apparently made cocaine part of his complete breakfast.

Narcotics cops made the discovery while raiding a St. Albans man’s home on Wednesday evening, finding a big drug stash inside — including one full kilo of the potent powder hidden in a cereal box.

Members of the NYPD Narcotics Major Case Squad executed the search warrant at 58-year-old Leo Dillard’s residence on Troutville Road at 6:50 p.m. on Aug. 29, as part of an ongoing investigation.

Once inside the residence, law enforcement sources said, the detectives found quantities of heroin and cocaine, along with more than $5,000 in cash and a loaded Smith and Wesson handgun.

According to the 113th Precinct, the cocaine kilo was contained within a box of Apple Jacks cereal. The U.S. Department of Justice notes on its website that a kilo of cocaine has a street value ranging between $20,000 and $30,000.


Detectives took Dillard into custody at the scene on six counts of criminal possession of a controlled substance and an additional charge of criminal possession of a firearm.

Sources familiar with the investigation said that Dillard’s rap sheet dates back to 1984, when he was arrested for grand larceny, and includes subsequent arrests in the years that followed for weapon and drug possession charges. His most recent arrest came in 2010, when he was booked for criminal use of drug paraphernalia.
