Two upstate New York men forgot their stash of drugs in a rental car at Albany International Airport — and ended up in handcuffs when they came back for the goods, authorities said.
Aasim Hilts and Shariff Frasier had dropped the vehicle at the airport Wednesday, said the Albany County Sheriff’s office.
Rental car employees found the drugs and called police, authorities said.
Deputy sheriffs ran into Hilts and Frasier when they “returned to the airport to retrieve the drugs they forgot,” the department said in a statement.
Hilts, 26, had a host of drugs on him — including 140 glassine envelopes of heroin, 62 counterfeit oxycodone pills pressed with fentanyl, more than 35 grams of MDMA, 10 Suboxone strips, marijuana and more than $5,600 in cash.
Hilts, who’s from Albany, faces multiple felony charges of criminal possession of a controlled substance, the county sheriff’s office said.
He was arraigned at Colonie Town Court and released under supervision of Albany County Probation, the sheriff’s office said.
Frasier, who’s from Schenectady, was slapped with just a single charge of marijuana possession.
He was issued an appearance ticket and will appear before a judge at a later date, said officials.
