A pair of Whitestone residents were arrested for marijuana possession after they reported a push-in robbery at their home.

A man and a woman were charged with drug possession after their Whitestone home was apparently robbed.

According to a police source, Christina Stold and Timothy Kush, 23, residents of a home on 13th Avenue and 141st Street, were arrested in the early morning hours of Tuesday after four suspects executed a push-in robbery.

Around 11 p.m. on Monday Kush told police he was leaving his home, via a side, door to walk his dog. He said he was approached by three Hispanic males wearing ski masks and one Hispanic female who pushed their way into the house, displayed a gun, tasered him and ransacked the premises.

The source said it was unclear what was taken from the home, but Kush and Stold are both charged with criminal possession of marijuana and criminal possession of a controlled substance with intent to sell.
