Newark NJ Police Arrest NY Man Accused of Distributing Heroin, Cocaine

Newark NJ Heroin Distribution SuspectNewark NJ police arrested a New York man who allegedly sold illegal drugs in the Central Ward.

The Newark Police Department sent detectives to a building located on the 100 block of 1st Street in Newark after receiving a report of a man brandishing a handgun.

According to authorities, the handguns were loaded with ammunition.
