Drug Raid at Newark New Jersey House Leads to Seizure of Illegal Weapons

Newark NJ Illegal Weapons LawyerNewark NJ police arrested a man after allegedly finding illegal weapons during a raid of a local residence.

The Newark Police Department received multiple complaints from neighbors about a house located on the 100 block of Chadwick Avenue in Newark, New Jersey. The neighbors complained that someone was selling drugs out of the residence.

After receiving the complaints, police conducted an investigation. The investigation included surveillance of the house.

Police eventually obtained a search warrant to enter the house. Detectives from the Newark Firearms Interdiction Unit and officers from the police department then raided the home.

During the search of the three-family home, police allegedly discovered multiple weapons. Among the weapons reportedly found by police were a sawed-off shotgun, two other shotguns, a 32-caliber handgun, and a 9-mm handgun.

Police also allegedly discovered a bulletproof vest, a police scanner, and illegal narcotics. Additionally, police said that they seized more than $7,000 in cash.

The 56-year-old suspect, who claimed to be the owner of the house, was placed under arrest. He has been charged with several criminal offenses, including multiple counts of unlawful possession of a weapon, unlawful possession of a bulletproof vest, and possession of drug paraphernalia.

Since the investigation remains active and ongoing, it is possible that other individuals will face charges in the case.

The Newark Police Department is asking for the public’s assistance in the investigation. Anyone with information about the alleged illegal activity at the Chadwick Avenue house is asked to contact the Crime Stoppers tip line at 877-695-8477 or 877-695-4867.
