Two Men Allegedly Planned to Sell Large Amount of Heroin at Mall in Paramus, New Jersey
According to officials, the two suspects regularly dealt heroin throughout New Jersey, including Bergen County.
When Bergen County authorities learned that the suspects were allegedly selling drugs, the Bergen County Prosecutor’s Office Narcotics Task Force began an investigation. The extensive investigation into the pair lasted roughly two months.
After completing their investigation, task force members located the suspects in Paramus NJ and arrested them.
At the time of their arrest, the suspects were reportedly about the sell six bricks of heroin at the Westfield Garden State Plaza. According to police, the six bricks of heroin are the equivalent of approximately 300 bags.
The suspects were each charged with possession of heroin with intent to distribute. However, investigators believe that additional charges could be pending because the suspects were allegedly dealing heroin at other times. If additional charges are filed, they would be presented to a Bergen County grand jury for possible indictment.
After being placed under arrest and processed, the suspects were taken to the Bergen County Jail in Hackensack, New Jersey. Each suspect is being held at the correctional facility on a $100,000 bail amount.
