Six years in stir for local pusherman
Emmanuel “Dough Boy” Quezada, age 29, of 145 Broadway, Haverstraw, was sentenced to six years in state prison this week by Rockland County Court Judge William K. Nelson. He pled guilty to criminal possession of a controlled substance in the 3rd degree after being found with 10 ounces of cocaine.
District Attorney Thomas P. Zugibe stated that on or about March 21, 2012 at approximately 6:25 p.m., a NYS Trooper observed a vehicle with tinted windows and an illegal sticker on the rear window operating on the NYS Thruway in the Village of Nyack. The defendant was the passenger of the vehicle and the trooper observed the odor of burnt marijuana emanating from the vehicle. A search of the vehicle revealed a small amount of marijuana and a dagger. At the police station, the defendant was found to be in possession of approximately 10 ounces of cocaine in his waistband.
At the time of his arrest Zugibe said Quezada was one of the most important drug busts of 2012. Quezada is a repeat violent felon and, according to authorities, a long time major source of illegal narcotics for Rockland County. Zugibe said that Dough Boy’s criminal record includes prior arrests for criminal sale and criminal possession of controlled substances, along with assault, robbery, sodomy, bail jumping and child endangerment.
