Two Men Accused of Selling Molly in Garfield New Jersey, Charged with Drug Distribution
Two Paterson New Jersey men were arrested after allegedly selling Molly to undercover officers in Garfield, NJ.
According to authorities, the arrests were made after detectives with the Bergen County Prosecutor’s Office Narcotic Task Force conducted an undercover sting operation.
A detective with the task force allegedly purchased 30 grams of Molly from a 28-year-old suspect in Garfield. Sometime later, another undercover officer reportedly bought 120 grams of Molly from the same suspect.
Authorities reportedly seized the drugs after the transactions. The drugs are believed to have a street value of approximately $5,000.
During the subsequent investigation, police learned that another individual was allegedly taking part in the illegal drug sales; the 23-year-old man was reportedly waiting in a car nearby while the other suspect conducted the Molly sales.
Prosecutors later said that they believe the 23-year-old suspect was “an integral part of the narcotics transaction.”
The 28-year-old suspect has been charged with distributing Molly. Meanwhile, the 23-year-old suspect has been charged as a co-conspirator in the case; he also faces charges for distribution of Molly.
After being placed under arrest and charged, the suspects were taken to the Bergen County Jail in Hackensack, New Jersey. They are being held at the correctional facility in lieu of separate $75,000 bail amounts.
