On Friday April 13, 2018 at approximately 12:10pm officers were dispatched to a suspicious vehicle complaint on Wolfpit Rd. Officers located the vehicle which was occupied by two (2) adult males and one (1) juvenile male from the Bronx, NY.

Directly outside of the vehicle was an opened package addressed to a Wolfpit Rd resident located approximately .5 miles from where the vehicle was found.
