Two men busted with three pounds of marijuana across from Fort Lee High School
Two men were arrested last week after police allegedly witnessed a drug deal at their apartment across from the Fort Lee High School, according to police. After witnessing a man enter the apartment and exit a few minutes later carrying two bags, police followed the vehicle and stopped it several blocks away. The bags contained two ounces of marijuana. Then, police raided the basement apartment where the man had emerged and found three (3) pounds of marijuana, bagging materials, a digital scale, and about $2,000 in cash.
The defendants are being held at the Bergen County Jail on $25,000 bail. The charges are possession with intent to distribute within 1,000 feet of the high school and within 500 feet of the Palisades State Park.
