Suspects Accused of Planning to Sell Heroin at Garden State Plaza in Paramus, NJ
According to authorities, the two suspects, who live in Paterson NJ, regularly dealt heroin throughout Bergen County.
When Bergen County officials learned of the suspects’ alleged involvement in illegal drug activity, the Bergen County Prosecutor’s Office Narcotics Task Force opened an investigation into the pair. The investigation lasted approximately two months.
At the conclusion of the investigation, members of the task force placed the suspects under arrest. The suspects were arrested in Paramus NJ.
It is believed that the suspects were on the verge of distributing six bricks of heroin at the Garden State Plaza mall. Police said that the six bricks of heroin are the equivalent of roughly 300 bags of heroin.
Thus far, the suspects have each been charged with possession of heroin with intent to distribute. However, since investigators believe that the suspects were dealing heroin on other occasions as well, more charges could follow. Any additional charges would be presented to a Bergen County grand jury for indictment.
After being arrested and charged, the suspects were transported to the Bergen County Jail in Hackensack, NJ. They are each being held at the correctional facility in lieu of $100,000 bail amounts.
