Former Larchmont Mayor Josh Mandell was arrested on drug charges during a routine traffic stop in Larchmont. According to Village of Larchmont Police, the arrest took place at 1:08am on June 17.
Police say he was driving eastbound on Boston Post Road 50 mph in a 35 mph zone.
The vehicle’s registration had been suspended and he was taken into custody for what is an “unclassified misdemeanor,” according to Capt. Antonino Rigano.
During an inventory search of the vehicle officers discovered a white powder substance that was presumed to be illegal drugs. The evidence has been sent to the County Crime lab for testing.
The former mayor was held at Village Hall until an evening arraignment where he was released on $2500 bail.
Mandell served as Larchmont’s mayor from 2010-2012, and still lives on Park Ave. in Larchmont.
