New York men arrested after trying to retrieve drugs they left in rental car, police say

These don’t appear to have been difficult arrests for police to make. 

Two New York men were taken into custody after they allegedly left drugs in a rental car and returned to pick up their forgotten stash, the Albany County Sheriff’s Office says. 

Deputies were first contacted by a rental car company at Albany International Airport on Wednesday. When they arrived to investigate the discovery made by its employees, they encountered Aasim Hilts and Shariff Frasier, News10 reports.
