Cops: Mister Softee's stash not just ice cream

Nassau police say a 22-year-old Elmont man has been arrested for selling cocaine around Westbury out of his Mister Softee ice cream truck.

Kenneth Leiton allegedly left his truck to sell cocaine inside a home in Westbury Saturday. That?s when police say they busted him.

Leiton was charged with the criminal possession and the sale of drugs. He also faces child endangerment charges because police say he sold ice cream to kids before and after the alleged drug deal.

Three others were also arrested in the bust.
