PLATTSBURGH, N.Y. — State police say they’ve arrested a 22-year-old New York man after he was found with marijuana, cocaine and LSD hidden inside a stuffed animal dressed in an anti-drug T-shirt.
Troopers say Gregory Bolongnese (bol-OH’-nays), of Plattsburgh, was arrested Monday at the bus station in his hometown near the Canadian border. They say they found two grams of pot, about a half-gram of cocaine and LSD inside a stuffed lion doll wearing a D.A.R.E. shirt.
D.A.R.E. stands for Drug Abuse Resistance Education, a program that aims to educate young people about staying away from drugs, gangs and violence.
Bolognese was charged with criminal possession of a controlled substance and unlawful possession of marijuana. It couldn’t be determined if he has a lawyer.
