ROCKLAND COUNTY, N.Y. - A vehicle and traffic stop in Rockland County led to drug charges for a man from the area.
On Wednesday, 49-year-old Ronald Babcock of Newburgh was arrested by officers with the Stony Point Police Department after being busted with Suboxone, a controlled substance he did not have a prescription for, Lt. Keith Williams said.
