YOU READ IT HERE FIRST: A trio from Allentown had made it only to Fort Lee on their way to Pennsylania when detectives pulled over their black sedan and found them carrying a kilo of cocaine worth about $40,000 if broken down and on the street, Bergen County Prosecutor John L. Molinelli said this afternoon.

Molinelli’s Narcotics Task Force, working on reliable information, stopped and got permission to search the 2001 Subaru, bearing Pennsylvania license plates.
Rey I. Sanchez-Juaride, 31, and Wandy Paulino-Ortiz, 28 are being held on $150,000 bail each in the Bergen County Jail. Cindy M. Vega-Lopez, 23, who apparently was along for the ride, is being held on $75,000.
All three are accused of having cocaine intended for sale.
