A man from the capital region is behind bars for allegedly bringing powerful psychoactive substances to the Hudson Valley.

On Monday around 1:30 a.m., State Police stopped a vehicle on I-87, in the Town of Woodbury, for an alleged speeding violation.

During the interviewing process, the driver, Ali F. Almudhalaa, 19, of Troy gave authorities a reason to search the vehicle, police say.

During the search, allegedly around 78 grams of Cathinone (KHAT) scheduled 1 drug was found.

“Cathinones are included in a group of drugs that concern public health officials called ‘new psychoactive substances,” according to “NPS are unregulated psychoactive (mind-altering) substances that have become newly available on the market and are intended to copy the effects of illegal drugs.”


Almudhalaa was charged with criminal possession of a controlled substance with intent to sell, a class B felony, and vehicle and traffic violations.

Almudhalaa was arraigned before the Town of Monroe Court and remanded to the Orange County Jail in lieu of $25,000 cash bail or $50,000 bond.
