The operator, CANDICE ELLIOTT, 34, of Laurelton, NY, the front seat passenger; CRYSTAL GILES, 26 of Rocky Mount, North Carolina and the rear passenger; CARL FRANCOIS, 30 0f Elmont, NY were placed under arrest and transported to the Sturbridge Barracks where they booked and held pending bail of $10,000.00.

All three occupants were charged with the following:

1) TRAFFICKING IN COCAINE;

2) RECEIVE STOLEN MOTOR VEHICLE;

3) POSSESS TO DISTRIBUTE COCAINE
