Mount Olive NJ police recently arrested a man who allegedly had heroin in his motor vehicle.
The arrest was made shortly after midnight at the International Trade Zone (also known as the International Trade Center), a massive development in Morris County NJ that accommodates offices, industrial buildings, and hotels.
A Mount Olive police officer was performing a check of businesses at the International Trade Zone when he came across a 2012 Nissan Sentra parked in the parking lot of a business that was closed at the time. The Mount Olive cop approached the vehicle and noticed that the suspect was inside the car.
The police officer knocked on the car window and woke up the suspect, who was reportedly asleep. As the officer peered inside the car, he allegedly saw various drug-related items in plain view.
When police officers later searched the suspect’s car, they reportedly discovered 54 used glassine wax folds with heroin residue, 15 Xanax pills, and a glass pipe containing burnt marijuana. Mount Olive police also allegedly found drug paraphernalia, including 21 unused glassine wax folds and 15 hypodermic needles.
The 26-year-old suspect, a resident of Long Valley (an unincorporated community within Washington Township, NJ), has been charged with numerous drug crimes, including possession of heroin, simple possession of marijuana, illegal prescription drug possession, and possession of drug paraphernalia.
After being arrested and processed, the suspect secured his release from police custody. He has a pending court date in Morris County to answer the charges against him.
