A New York City duo is facing charges after they were allegedly busted with a massive amount of marijuana during a traffic stop in the region.

Troopers in Saratoga County stopped the suspects’ car just after noon on Thursday, Nov. 10, as they drove on I-87 in the town of Wilton, according to State Police.

A subsequent search of the vehicle revealed approximately 400 pounds of marijuana, police said.

Photos released by investigators show more than a dozen cardboard boxes filled with plastic bags containing the drugs.

Hongqiang Shi, age 28 of Flushing, Queens, and Tongdeng Lu, age 63, of Brooklyn, were both arrested for first-degree criminal possession of cannabis, a felony.

They were arraigned in the Wilton Town Court and released on their own recognizance.

Accused Kidnapper Of Couple In Paterson Has Been Jailed Since Last Week, Authorities Reveal

Authorities revealed on Monday that one of several men who carjacked and abducted a couple in Paterson last week was actually captured a short time later.

City resident Juan Montero-Pena, 30, was among several men who accosted the 38-year-old Paterson woman and her 47-year-old male companion from Long Island in the area of Jackson Street and Washington Avenue around 8 p.m. last Thursday, Dec. 1, authorities announced on Dec. 5.

Bloomfield police located the vehicle and captured Montero-Pena in the area of Arlington and Watsessing avenues in their town shortly after 9:30 p.m., Passaic County Prosecutor Camelia M. Valdes, Acting Paterson Police Chief Bert Ribeiro and Bloomfield Police Director of Public Safety Samuel A. DeMaio said in a joint release on Monday.

Neither victim sustained serious injuries as a result of the incident, they said.

Valdes and the police officials didn’t say whether any of the other kidnappers had been caught or identified.

They also didn’t say why they waited until Monday to address the situation, although it was believed to be for investigative reasons tied to those attempts.

Montero-Pena has remained held in the Passaic County Jail since last week pending a first appearance in Central Judicial Court in Paterson this Wednesday.

Montero-Pena is charged with carjacking, kidnapping, robbery, making terroristic threats and simple assault.
