Two Westchester men are behind bars after being busted with forged vehicle credentials during a midday traffic stop on I-87 in Clarkstown.

New York State Police troopers stopped Sleepy Hollow residents Erickson Rodriguez-Martinez and his passenger Jhon Santos Guzman, both 26, shortly after 1:30 p.m. on Monday, Nov. 26, when he committed a traffic violation. During the traffic stop, troopers said that probable cause to search the vehicle was established.
