California Man Faces Federal Drug Distribution Charges in Newark NJ Court

Newark New Jersey Drug Crime AttorneysA California man has been charged with federal drug crimes after reportedly being busted with nearly 60 pounds of illegal drugs in New Jersey. The suspect recently appeared in US District Court in Newark NJ, with the district court judge ordering that he be held in federal custody.

According to authorities, the suspect was caught driving a tractor-trailer that contained the large quantity of methamphetamine. Police made the bust as part of an investigation into the suspect.

The Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) sent agents to conduct surveillance on a tractor-trailer that had been parked in South Amboy, New Jersey. Federal agents later tracked the suspect as he allegedly drove the vehicle from South Amboy to Woodbridge Township, NJ. The suspect was reportedly accompanied by another man as they carried a heavy suitcase into the vehicle’s cab.

The suspect had reportedly been staying at an apartment located in Fords, an unincorporated community within Woodbridge, New Jersey. When the suspect arrived in Woodbridge, police officers pulled over his rig. A police K-9 unit then conducted a search of the vehicle and allegedly discovered the illegal narcotics. Police also allegedly found a large amount of cash.

The suspect, a 45-year-old resident of California, was subsequently placed under arrest and charged with possession of methamphetamine with intent to distribute. The very serious criminal charges were filed in the U.S. District Court in Newark, New Jersey.

If the suspect is ultimately convicted on the federal drug crime charges, he could end up spending the rest of his life behind bars.
