Newark New Jersey law enforcement arrested a located man in the city’s North Ward after police allegedly found him in possession of cocaine.
The suspect is a 22-year-old man who lives in Newark, NJ. According to authorities, the suspect was observed walking out of his home on the 300 block of North 11th Street in Newark and carrying a brown paper bag filled with illegal narcotics.
Newark NJ cops conducted surveillance on the suspect’s residence and followed him as he reportedly got into a 2008 Honda Odyssey and drove away. Police subsequently stopped the suspect’s motor vehicle as he got near Belleville, New Jersey. When cops approached the vehicle, they reportedly saw the suspect attempt to hide the illegal drugs.
Newark police officers and Essex County Sheriff’s officers allegedly found large quantities of narcotics, including cocaine and drug paraphernalia, during a search of the suspect’s Newark NJ apartment and his car.
The suspect now faces several criminal charges, including charges for possession of cocaine with intent to distribute and possession of drug paraphernalia. Beyond that, the suspect could be subject to enhanced penalties because he has also been charged with possession with intent to distribute cocaine near a public school.
