Manhasset man charged on DUI with ‘several hundred’ pills


Nassau County Police said a Manhasset man officers stopped for driving erratically last week had “several hundred” varying types of prescription medication pills in his car when he was arrested.

Kenny Ho, 47 of 183 Crabapple Road was pulled over by police in his 2005 Lexus at 11:10 p.m. last Wednesday after he was spotted driving erratically on the westbound side of Northern Boulevard, a county police news release said.

After he was interviewed by officers, Ho was determined to be under the influence of drugs, police said.

The ensuing search of Ho’s car turned up “multiple bottles containing several hundred pills believed to be hydrocodone, escitalopram and carisoprodol,” the news release said.

Ho’s vehicle was impounded and he was charged with three counts of criminal possession of a controlled substance, two counts of driving while ability impaired, failure to stay in a single lane and impeding traffic. He was arraigned at 1st District Court in Hempstead last Thursday.
