Greenburgh Task Force: Felony Drug Sale Bust

Greenburgh Task Force reported the arrest of a Tarrytown man following a drug sale investigation.

The Greenburgh Drug and Alcohol Task made a drug sale investigation and felony arrest on White Plains Road on Jan. 22.

The task force called Tarrytown police after noon to inform them they were conducting an investigation in the area. At 5:45 p.m., the task force reported the arrest of Brittain Purcelle, 23, residing on Old White Plains Road in Tarrytown, for the criminal sale of a controlled substance in the fifth, a D Felony, in the parking lot of the T.G.I. Fridays.

Lieutenant William Herguth said police found on Purcelle three clear gelatin capsules containing a drug known under street name “molly.”

According to the Drug Enforcement Administration, as referenced here in an CNN article, "molly is the powder or crystal form of MDMA -- or 3, 4-Methylenedioxymethamphetamine, a chemical drug most commonly known for its use in the pressed pill Ecstasy."

Purcelle was brought to Tarrytown headquarters for booking, and released with a court date. 

Days later, Irvington Police reported Purcelle had surrended himself to police after allegedly selling MDMA to an undercover Greenburgh task force officer on Irvington's Main Street in January. Read more on this story out of Irvington Patch here.

Just to set the record straight, he is a resident of Greenburgh. The location has a Tarrytown mailing address.

I'm glad the village police departments teamed up to fight off the drug dealers, our neighborhoods and kids are safer for it! Keep up the good work!
