Trooper Discovers Pirated Movies After Making Traffic Stop

RIDGEFIELD PARK – A Bronx man was arrested following a traffic stop this week when a state police trooper spotted hundreds of suspected counterfeit movies and CDs in his vehicle.

Milton Yagual, 54, was arrested and charged with second degree selling counterfeit marks and other related charges, according to State Police spokesman Sgt. First Class Stephen Jones. Yagual was taken to Bergen County Jail, where he was being held in default of $50,000 full cash bail.

Trooper Gerard Tibbs from the Totowa Barracks stopped a green Honda Odyssey minivan driven by Yagual for failure to keep right on Interstate 80 in Ridgefield Park on Tuesday evening. Police seized 2,245 discs – including a number of movies still in theaters – and impounded the vehicle.
