Hillsdale officer finds hundreds of dollars worth of high-end booze bought with bogus credit cards

YOU READ IT HERE FIRST: A driver stopped by a Hillsdale patrol officer for not having his headlights on found even more trouble when police found cases of high-quality booze in the back seat — bought with bogus credit cards.

Hillsdale Police Officer Anthony Larcher pulled in behind the Chevy Impala as it turned into the parking lot at St. John’s Church on Hillsdale Avenue just after 7:30 Tuesday night.

Talking to the driver and his passenger, Larcher noticed a strong odor of burnt marijuana, Sgt. Sean Smith told CLIFFVIEW PILOT this afternoon.

The driver, identified as Alex Selby, 22, of Jamaica, Queens, also “was acting very nervous,”

Selby told the officer he didn’t have a driver’s license, then gave him false identification, Smith said.

Backups quickly arrived and helped interview both Selby and his passenger, 23-year-old Candace Woodley of Ozone Park.

When their stories didn’t match up, they obtained written consent from Woodley, who owns the car, to search the vehicle.

In the front center console they found a small amount of pot, Smith said.

In the back seat, they found boxes of high-end hooch — including bottles of Patrol Silver tequila, Moet champagne and Ciroc vodka, the sergeant said.

Also in the cases were receipts from two Bottle King stores — on in Hillsdale, the other Ramsey — for hundreds of dollars in fake credit-card purchases, he said.

After further investigation, Hillsdale police charged both with receiving stolen property and fraudulent use of credit cards.

Woodley was released on a summons.

Selby, however, was taken to the Bergen County Jail on $10,000 bail, which he posted soon after.

Additional charges against Selby include credit card theft, criminal simulation, presenting false identification, hindering arrest and possession of both marijuana and drug paraphernalia.
