Partner and associate arrested at law firm on drug charges

A New York lawyer and an associate attorney were arrested Wednesday at his law firm on drug charges.

George W. Galgano, 41, who practices in White Plains, faces a felony charge and a misdemeanor charge of possession of a controlled substance. Police said amphetamines, Oxycontin and Percocet were found at the law office and Galgano’s home in Purchase, the Journal News reports.

The associate faces a misdemeanor possession charge.

Galgano did not respond to a request for comment by the Journal News, and it appears the newspaper did not attempt to reach the associate.
