New York State Troopers Arrest Genghis Khan On Drug, Weapons Charges

New York State Police officials today announced the arrest of Genghis Khan on gun and drug charges.

Khan, a 22-year-old Brooklyn resident, was collared yesterday afternoon after troopers stopped a 2001 Chevy for traffic offenses as it traveled on Interstate 87 in Clarkstown in Rockland County.

A search of the vehicle, which smelled of pot, turned up cocaine, marijuana, and a Ruger .357 revolver. The car’s driver, Alex Spanos, 23, and passenger Shawna Barrier, 24, were also charged with narcotics and weapons possession counts. A judge this morning set bail at $25,000 for Spanos and Barrier.

Khan, pictured in the above mug shot, is being held without bail. He is also facing an additional felony, criminal possession of a weapon with previous conviction.
