Newark NJ Business Shut Down, Men Accused of Selling Illegal Drugs

Newark New Jersey Heroin ChargesEssex County law enforcement arrested three Newark NJ men who were allegedly running an illegal drug business out of a local deli.

According to authorities, the three suspects were selling drugs at a deli in Newark, New Jersey.

Law enforcement opened an investigation into the suspected drug activity after receiving a report of drug trafficking at the Fairmount Deli, which is located on 16th Avenue in Newark, NJ. An Essex County Sheriff’s Office task force conducted the investigation and then got a search warrant for the business. The task force included detectives from the Essex County Sheriff’s Office, the Newark Police Department, the Bloomfield Police Department, and the Irvington Police Department.

A search of the deli allegedly turned up large quantities of marijuana and heroin. Newark detectives reportedly found 18 plastic bags containing marijuana, 138 glassine envelopes filled with heroin, and another 146 grams of marijuana. The drugs were reportedly found in various spots in the business, including the front counter, the storage room, and above the ceiling tiles.

The suspects who were placed under arrest include the 52-year-old deli manager and his two cousins, both of whom are 24 years old.

The suspects have been charged with marijuana distribution and heroin distribution.

After being arrested and processed, the suspects were remanded to the Essex County Correctional Facility in Newark, New Jersey. They were being held at the jail on bail amounts ranging from $50K to $75K.
