BEDFORD, N.Y. – A man suspected in an attempted murder in Philadelphia was arrested along Interstate 684 in Bedford Saturday for criminal possession of crack cocaine, heroin, marijuana and brass knuckles, state police in Somers said.
Shenika Edwards, 29, was driving with a male passenger who had no identification. The man proceeded to represent himself as 32-year old Clarence Moss. A fingerprint check revealed Moss was a suspect in a July shooting in Philadelphia, in which he used the name Brandon McCall, police said. He is wanted by Philadelphia police for attempted murder and aggravated assault, police said.
Police found more than 125 “rocks” of crack cocaine, 250 decks of heroin, a marijuana cigarette and brass knuckles after stopping Edwards’ vehicle for speeding.
Both suspects were charged with two counts of criminal possession of a controlled substance in the third degree, a class B felony, and criminal possession of a weapon in the fourth degree, a class A misdemeanor. Edwards was also given a violation for unlawful possession of marijuana, police said.
Both Moss and Edwards were arraigned in North Castle court and remanded to Westchester County jail without bail. They are due in Bedford court at 7 p.m. Thursday.
