An Aquebogue man was arrested Thursday for selling crack cocaine, Riverhead Police said in a press release. The arrest was reportedly the result of complaints over a high volume of traffic in the alleged dealer’s neighborhood.
Earl Seymore, 57, was arrested after members of the East End Drug Task Force executed a search warrant at his home on Wanda Way. Police said they recovered an undisclosed quantity of crack cocaine from inside the home.
Mr. Seymore was charged with third-degree criminal possession of a controlled substance with intent to sell and fourth degree criminal possession of a controlled substance.
He was arraigned in Riverhead Town Justice Court Thursday and remanded to the county jail in lieu of $30,000 cash bail, according to police.
