Newark NJ Man Arrested, Allegedly Had Large Amount of Cocaine in Apartment

Newark NJ Cocaine Distribution LawyersLaw enforcement recently arrested a man accused of distributing cocaine in Newark, New Jersey.

Undercover detectives with the Newark Police Department reportedly made a drug buy at a residence in an apartment building located in the 200 block of Mount Prospect Avenue in Newark, NJ. The detectives went to the apartment as part of an investigation that included a number of other agencies, including the Essex County Prosecutor’s Office Narcotics Task Force, the FBI, and Immigration and Customs Enforcement.

Police later obtained, and executed, a search warrant at the residence.

Prior to entering the apartment, police officers watched the 50-year-old suspect walk outside the apartment complex and drive off in a motor vehicle. Police pulled over the suspect a few blocks away.

When the suspect’s vehicle was stopped, police officers allegedly saw the suspect attempt to conceal a small bag of narcotics. The suspect was placed under arrest and taken to Newark police headquarters.

During a subsequent search of the suspect’s apartment, detectives with the narcotics task force reportedly discovered 281 grams of cocaine in a laundry area. Police officers seized the cocaine, as well as $1,750 in cash.

The suspect is likely to be charged with several drug offenses, including distribution of cocaine and possession of cocaine.
