Orange NJ Firefighter Accused of Possessing Heroin, Suspended from Job

Orange NJ Firefighter Accused of Heroin PossessionAn Orange NJ firefighter who allegedly possessed heroin in his motor vehicle has been suspended from his job with the Orange Fire Department.

The incident occurred on September 4, 2016. The suspect was arrested while driving through Parsippany, New Jersey. A Parsippany-Troy Hills patrol officer pulled over the suspect after observing him driving erratically and swerving on the roadway.

The suspect was subsequently placed under arrest and charged with Driving While Intoxicated (DWI).

Additionally, a search of the suspect’s motor vehicle allegedly turned up a small quantity of heroin inside the car.

Now the suspect has been suspended without pay from his position at the Orange Fire Department. His suspension will result in a disciplinary hearing and is likely to remain in effect until the criminal charges against him have been resolved.

The Essex County resident will be required to make an appearance in Morris County Superior Court on October 31 for a pre-indictment conference with prosecutors. Morris County prosecutors have reportedly indicated that they plan to offer the suspect a plea deal that will require him to forfeit his firefighting job in Orange NJ and agree to a ban from all public employment in the State of New Jersey.

It is unclear if the plea deal would also require the suspect to serve time in NJ State Prison.
