Men Arrested for Heroin Distribution, Weapons Offenses in Newark’s West Ward

Newark Heroin Distribution AttorneysNewark New Jersey police recently arrested three men accused of being involved in a heroin deal in a West Ward neighborhood.

Law enforcement received multiple complaints about drug activity at a home located near South 7th Street and 12th Avenue in Newark, NJ.

One of the complaints came from an anonymous individual who used the Newark Police Department tip line. The caller provided police with a detailed description of one of the suspects, as well as information about the location of a drug stash. Additionally, the caller offered a description of the suspect’s vehicle and license plate number.

After receiving the tip, the Newark Police Department Narcotics Enforcement Section sent officers to the area and set up surveillance.

A short time later, a plainclothes detective reportedly saw the suspect and two other men sitting in a car. According to the officer, the men appeared to be conducting a drug sale.

Newark detectives contacted other officers and told them to pull over the suspects’ vehicle after they left the area. The vehicle soon left with two of the men inside.

Police stopped the suspects’ car and placed the driver under arrest. A subsequent search of the passenger allegedly turned up several decks of heroin. As a result, the passenger was also placed under arrest.

Detectives later located and arrested the third man, who had gotten into his own car.

Newark police officers searched both vehicles and allegedly found heroin, a loaded .9mm handgun, and cash that authorities believe to be proceeds from illegal drug transactions.

All three suspects, who live in Newark NJ, have been charged with drug crimes. The main suspect was charged with heroin distribution and unlawful possession of a weapon.

The Newark Police Department is actively investigating the case. Police have asked that anyone with information about the alleged drug activity or the suspects please call the Crime Stoppers anonymous tip line at 877-NWK-TIPS or 877-NWK-GUNS.
