Man Faces Drug Charges In Queens

NEW YORK (CBS 2) — A traffic stop leads to a huge drug bust in Queens.

Police said 30-year-old Clement Hunter ran a red light and failed to signal while making a right hand turn Sunday morning in Jamaica.

Two officers tried to pull him over, but officials said he kept driving, eventually ending up on a dead end street.

According to investigators, when the officers approached the Dodge Caravan, they found 513 pounds of marijuana inside.

Hunter faces a number of charges including drug possession.
