The charges will be graded as a first degree, second degree, third degree, or fourth degree charge depending on the amount of alleged heroin in your possession.

Here is a recent heroin bust the police conducted in Wayne, NJ.

Police recently arrested three men who were allegedly in possession of large amounts of heroin in Wayne, New Jersey.

The arrests were made during two separate traffic stops. The first arrest occurred after a Wayne NJ police officer reportedly saw a 2001 Jeep Cherokee driving with a cracked windshield. The officer then pulled over the vehicle for equipment violations. The traffic stop occurred in the parking lot of a Quick Check located at the intersection of Hamburg Turnpike and Pompton Road. While speaking with the driver, the officer reportedly saw the passenger “acting suspiciously.” At one point, the passenger appeared to be moving in an attempt to hide items in his pants.

A subsequent search of the vehicle allegedly turned up 30 bags of heroin. According to authorities, the bags of heroin were stamped with “Last Hit” and “Dirty Jerz.” The 23-year-old passenger, who lives in Wayne NJ, was placed under arrest and charged with possession of heroin. Meanwhile, the driver of the vehicle was issued a traffic ticket for equipment violations.

Later that week, a Wayne NJ detective made another drug arrest. The detective reportedly observed suspicious activity in a parking lot located at 1400 Route 23 North. When the detective walked toward the vehicle, he reportedly saw the driver holding an uncapped needle in his hand. Additionally, the driver allegedly had several used glassine bags of heroin on his lap.

When another Wayne police officer arrived at the scene to back up the detective, he reportedly saw the backseat passenger with several more used glassine bags of heroin on his lap. A subsequent search of the car allegedly led to the discovery of 37 bags of heroin. The bags were reportedly stamped with “The Finals.”

The 28-year-old driver, who is from Montague, and the 27-year-old passenger, who is from Port Jervis New York, were both placed under arrest. They face a number of drug charges, including possession of heroin, possession of drug paraphernalia, and possession of a syringe. In total, police reportedly seized 67 bags of heroin in both incidents.

Challenge the traffic stop or the search – Motion to suppress drugs seized

A seasoned criminal defense lawyer may be able to challenge these cases based on the traffic stop or the search. If the judge finds that there was no probable cause for the stop, then any drugs seized as a result of that illegal stop should be thrown out of court. Similarly, if the judge finds that the search was conducted illegally without a warrant, then those drugs seized from the vehicle will be suppressed and can not be used in court to prosecute these defendants.
