Essex County Police Arrest Two Men Who Allegedly Made Drug Deal on Newark NJ Street

Essex County NJ Drug Crime AttorneysEssex County law enforcement arrested two people on suspicion of selling heroin and crack cocaine in Newark, New Jersey.

According to authorities, the Newark Police Department received numerous complaints about illegal drug activity in the area of Fairmount Avenue and South Orange Avenue in Newark, NJ. Newark police reached out to the Essex County Sheriff’s Office, which sent narcotics detectives to the area to conduct surveillance.

Essex County sheriff’s detectives allegedly saw one of the suspects, a 28-year-old Newark man, loitering on the street. That man was then approached by the other suspect, a 47-year-old Florham Park resident. Police then observed the Newark suspect walk to a nearby home, remove a plastic bag hidden next to a fence, and then give an item from the bag to the other suspect in exchange for cash.

When law enforcement moved in on the suspects and searched both men, they allegedly discovered that the Florham Park suspect had a vial of crack cocaine in his possession.

Police later seized the plastic bag and reportedly found that it contained 73 vials of crack cocaine and 37 envelopes filled with heroin.

Both suspects were placed under arrest. The Newark suspect has been charged with distribution of cocaine and distribution of heroin. Meanwhile, the Florham Park NJ suspect who allegedly bought the drugs has been charged with possession of cocaine.

After being arrested and charged, the suspects were remanded to the Essex County Correctional Facility in Newark, New Jersey. The suspect accused of selling drugs was being held at the jail in lieu of a $75,000 bail amount, while the suspect accused of buying drugs was being held there on a $25,000 bail amount.
