Newark NJ Police Shut Down Unlicensed After-Hours Club, Allegedly Find Marijuana

Newark NJ Marijuana Possession AttorneysNewark New Jersey police arrested three people during a drug bust at an after-hours club.

The arrests were made around 3:30 a.m. According to authorities, the Newark Police Department received an anonymous tip about illegal drug activity and unlicensed alcohol sales at an under-the-radar club located on South Orange Avenue in Newark, NJ. Newark NJ detectives went to the scene and allegedly found that alcohol was being sold to patrons even though no one present actually had a license to sell alcohol.

One person inside the club, a 34-year-old East Orange man, was immediately placed under arrest. He allegedly had a small amount of marijuana on his person.

Additionally, Newark police arrested a 36-year-old East Orange man, identified as the party promoter, and a 63-year-old East Orange NJ man, identified as the owner of the establishment. Neither suspect was able to provide police with credentials or a valid liquor license.

After shutting down the club, Newark detectives searched the premises and reportedly seized 28 bottles of liquor and more than 210 bottles of beer. Police also allegedly confiscated 145 grams of marijuana.

The promoter of the party has been charged with aiding and abetting an unlicensed liquor establishment, while the owner of the building has been charged with unlawful possession of alcohol and maintaining an unlicensed liquor establishment.
