Bloomfield NJ Police Arrest Two Suspects Accused of Selling Mason Jars Filled with Marijuana

Bloomfield NJ police recently arrested two men who were allegedly selling mason jars filled with marijuana on a township street corner.

According to law enforcement, the illegal drug sales occurred at the intersection of Belleville Avenue and Davey Street in Bloomfield, New Jersey.

A joint task force, formed from the Bloomfield Police Department and the Essex County Sheriff’s Office, witnessed the drug transactions. The task force was in the process of conducting undercover surveillance after receiving a number of complaints about possible drug trafficking in the neighborhood.

Police officers allegedly saw the two main suspects accept money from a man and a woman. After getting the cash, the suspects allegedly handed over a glass mason jar that was filled with pot.

Members of the task force then converged on the suspects, including the alleged buyers, and investigated further. Police allegedly discovered the two alleged sellers in possession of 529 grams of marijuana with an estimated street value of roughly $5,000.

The two individuals who allegedly tried to purchase the marijuana are both from Woodland Park, NJ.

The two main suspects were placed under arrest and charged with several drug crimes, including distribution of marijuana. Meanwhile, the two people accused of trying to purchase the marijuana were both charged with simple possession of marijuana.

If the two suspects charged with marijuana distribution are ultimately convicted, they face significant penalties. As set forth by N.J.S.A. 2C:35-5, distribution of between 1 ounce and 5 pounds of marijuana is a third degree felony. A conviction on third degree marijuana distribution charges could net the offenders up to 5 years in NJ State Prison.

Sometime after being arrested and processed, the suspects were released from police custody on their own recognizance.
