SUPREME COURT OF NEW YORK, APPELLATE DIVISION, SECOND DEPARTMENT
May 19, 1969
THE PEOPLE OF THE STATE OF NEW YORK, RESPONDENT,
SALLY LISTER AND ROSE DE CAINES, APPELLANTS
Two judgments (each as to a respective appellant) of the County Court, Nassau County, both rendered June 27, 1967, and order of said court, dated October 17, 1966, affirmed.
Christ, Acting P. J., Brennan, Hopkins, Munder and Martuscello, JJ., concur.
In our opinion, the police officers had probable cause to arrest appellants and, consequently, the search of their automobile and the resulting seizure of the merchandise found therein were lawful since they were incident to a lawful arrest (see People v. Merola, 30 A.D.2d 963
, and authorities cited therein). Moreover, the sentences imposed were not excessive.
