Garfield NJ Police Arrest Two Men for Allegedly Distributing Molly
Two Paterson New Jersey men were recently busted by Garfield NJ police for allegedly selling Molly to undercover officers.
According to officials, the arrests were during undercover sting operations conducted by detectives with the Bergen County Prosecutor’s Office Narcotic Task Force.
The undercover cops allegedly made two separate drug buys from the suspects. The first buy reportedly occurred when a task force detective purchased 30 grams of Molly from a 28-year-old suspect. During the second drug buy, a different undercover cop allegedly bought 120 grams of Molly from the suspect.
Law enforcement later seized all of the drugs involved in the transactions. It is believed that the Molly has a street value of around $5,000.
While conducting surveillance for the undercover operation, Garfield police learned that another person was waiting in a car nearby. According to authorities, the 23-year-old suspect played a major part in the illegal drug transactions.
Bergen County prosecutors later said that the 23-year-old suspect was “an integral part of the narcotics transaction.”
The two suspects face significant criminal charges for their alleged roles in the illegal drug sales. The 28-year-old suspect has been charged with distributing Molly, while the 23-year-old suspect has been charged with distribution of Molly as a co-conspirator.
After being arrested and charged, the suspects were taken to the Bergen County Jail in Hackensack, New Jersey. They are each being held at the correctional facility in lieu of separate $75,000 bail amounts.
