Stop for open containers leads to crack bust in drug free zone
Polk County Enterprise, October 2007

LIVINGSTON — A traffic stop at about 7:20 p.m. Tuesday on Colita Street resulted in the arrest of a Livingston man on felony drug charges.
Officer Ronnie Bogany initiated the traffic stop after observing the occupants of a vehicle with open containers of alcoholic beverages, according to Lt. Matt Parish, Livingston Police Department spokesman.
During the stop, Bogany noticed the driver and passenger were behaving suspiciously and attempted to hide something, Parish said.
Bogany radioed for backup from other officers patrolling the area and then obtained consent to search the vehicle where he found less than one gram of a substance that appeared to be crack cocaine, Parish said.
Isral Sameniego, 61, was taken to the Polk County jail and charged possession of a controlled substance, less than one gram, in a drug free zone. The charge is a third-degree felony.
The driver was cited for possessing an open alcoholic beverage container in a vehicle, a Class C misdemeanor.
