$5 Million Worth of Cocaine Taken From Crowne Plaza Hotel in Times Square

$5 Million Worth of Cocaine Taken From Crowne Plaza Hotel in Times Square

Snow hit New York last month, and nobody noticed. That's because the NYPD seized over 100 pounds of coke worth $5 million from the Crowne Plaza Hotel in Times Square. Fernando Alarado was arrested after placing a suitcase holding 30 pounds worth of cocaine into the trunk of a BMW as Luis Cuevas-Muniz placed 8 pounds of cocaine into a livery cab, then went back inside to get a second bag containing 66 pounds of that white. 

State police brought over two nearby NYPD officers to arrest Cuevas-Muniz in the hotel lobby, and the driver of the cab was apprehended a few blocks away. Two other suspects were arrested inside of the hotel, but a third managed to escape into the Times Square mass of people.
