FORT LEE, N.J. (AP) - New Jersey prosecutors say a New York City taxi driver was arrested after officials say they found approximately $800,000 in crystal meth in his vehicle.
Forty-two-year-old Gerardo Camilo-Nolasco, of the Bronx, was pulled over in Fort Lee Monday in connection with a Bergen County narcotics probe. Acting Bergen County Prosecutor Dennis Calo says police found 10 pounds of methamphetamine in his vehicle, alongside four grams of cocaine.
Prosecutors say the meth has a street value estimated at $800,000. Camilo-Nolasco faces several drug charges, including cocaine and meth possession.
A New York City Taxi and Limousine Commission spokesperson says the Camilo-Nolasco's taxi license expired in 2011, and his application to renew was denied. It wasn't immediately clear if he had an attorney.
