NEW WINDSOR - A New Windsor deli is back open for business after being shut down when one of its owners was arrested for selling marijuana.

Police say they found several small plastic bags filled with marijuana, packaged for sale and displayed in front of Ducktown Deli, alongside cold cuts and other goods.

Co-owner of the family-run business Samerra Zraida, 32, is being charged with three counts of criminal sale of marijuana.

Neighbors complained to police about the alleged activities. After a monthlong investigation, they were finally able to search the deli on Friday. They discovered around eight ounces of marijuana from several locations within the business, including the living area in the basement.

The owners of the deli did not wish to appear on camera, but are talking with police and say that it was all a misunderstanding.
