Wood-Ridge NJ Man Accused of Dealing Heroin Out of Residence
Police in Wood-Ridge NJ recently arrested a man accused of dealing heroin throughout the borough.
According to authorities, Bergen County law enforcement received a report of illegal drug activity at a residence in Wood-Ridge, New Jersey. Police conducted an investigation and eventually obtained enough evidence to secure a search warrant for the suspect’s home.
When members of the Bergen County Narcotic Task Force served the search warrant at the suspect’s house, he allegedly tried to flee the scene in his car. According to Bergen County prosecutors, the suspect “drove at a high rate of speed in an erratic manner to the driveway of his residence.”
The suspect reportedly got out of his car and tried to run away from police. While the suspect fled on foot, he allegedly tossed two bricks of heroin to the ground. Police reportedly recovered the illegal drugs.
An officer later saw the suspect walking on 10th Street. The suspect was subsequently placed under arrest without further incident.
A search of the suspect’s house led to police allegedly finding an unspecified amount of marijuana, Suboxone, and illegal prescription drugs. Police also allegedly discovered a defaced firearm, an imitation handgun, and a rifle pellet gun at the house.
After being arrested and processed, the suspect was remanded to the Bergen County Jail in Hackensack, NJ. He was being held at the jail on a $180,000 bail amount.
