A Great Neck man was arrested for dealing drugs early this morning, Saturday, March 25, at 12:50 a.m. in Great Neck, report Nassau County Third Squad police officers.

According to detectives, in response to community complaints regarding drug sales, Nassau County Bureau of Special Operations officers conducted intensive patrols in plain clothes in the Great Neck area.

Officers observed a hand-to-hand drug transaction in front of 46 Great Neck Rd., by the closed Cheeburger Cheeburger, and arrested 21-year-old Corey Howell of Spinney Hill Road.
