Earlier this month, Morris County Park police officers arrested multiple people on outstanding arrest warrants. Additionally, Morris County Park cops arrested one person in Randolph NJ on drug possession charges.
Two Morris County Park police officers were on patrol in Hedden County Park in Mine Hill NJ when they reportedly saw a suspect committing a municipal ordinance violation. In New Jersey, a municipal ordinance violation is not a crime but still carries penalties like fines.
According to authorities, the suspect who was committing the ordinance violation in Mine Hill had a warrant out for his arrest. The warrant had been issued by the Bergen County Sheriff’s Office, so police placed the suspect under arrest and turned him over to Bergen County law enforcement.
The suspect is a 32-year-old man from Boca Raton, Florida. He was eventually remanded to the Bergen County Jail in Hackensack on an unspecified bail amount.
Morris County NJ police made another arrest while conducting a traffic stop in Randolph Township, New Jersey. A Morris County Park patrol officer reportedly saw the suspect commit a traffic violation, so he pulled him over. When the police officer ran a check on the suspect, a 59-year-old Randolph NJ woman, he learned that she had an arrest warrant for failure to appear in Mine Hill Municipal Court. She was subsequently arrested and transferred to the custody of the Wharton Police Department.
Morris County Park police also arrested a Boonton NJ man who allegedly was in possession of a controlled dangerous substance (CDS) while walking through Hedden County Park in Randolph, New Jersey.
The 19-year-old suspect was reportedly speaking to another person at the park and appeared to be suspicious. The police officers investigated further and allegedly found the suspect carrying an unspecified quantity of an illegal narcotic.
The suspect was placed under arrest and charged with a drug possession offense.
