Newark New Jersey Police Raid Local Residence, Allegedly Find Illegal Weapons and Drugs

Newark New Jersey Drug Crimes LawyersNewark NJ police raided a local residence and allegedly discovered weapons and drugs.

The Newark Police Department received a number of complaints from West Ward residents about drug activity in the area. So members of the Newark Firearms Interdiction Team investigated the situation and determined that illegal drugs were being dealt out of a two-family home located on the 200 block of Fairmount Avenue.

Police obtained a search warrant, which they subsequently executed at the residence.

Once inside the home, detectives reportedly found illegal weapons, drugs, and a large amount of cash. The illegal weapons included a loaded .357 Magnum handgun, a rifle, and ammunition.

In addition to finding illegal narcotics, detectives also reportedly discovered drug paraphernalia and approximately $1,100 in cash. Authorities believe that the money represents proceeds from drug sales at the residence.

Police also found the 25-year-old suspect, who had already been identified as the “target” of the investigation. He was located inside the first-floor apartment and placed under arrest without incident.

The suspect has been charged with a number of weapons offenses and drug crimes.

After the raid, the Newark police director praised the department’s Firearms Interdiction Team for working to get weapons, drugs, and criminals off city streets.

The Newark Police Department is still investigating the case and trying to determine if other suspects are connected to the alleged drug crimes. Anyone who has information about the reported drug activity is asked to call the Crime Stoppers tip line at 877-NWK-TIPS or 877-NWK-GUNS.
