Bergenfield NJ Police Arrest Three on Charges of Marijuana Distribution
Police officers recently apprehended a Bergenfield NJ man who allegedly sold marijuana.
Bergenfield police received word of a suspicious vehicle around the intersection of Preston Place and Haven Avenue in Bergenfield NJ and immediately dispatched police officers to the scene.
When Bergenfield NJ patrol cops got to the area, they found the car and spoke with the occupants: the driver and two passengers.
Police later conducted a search of the car and allegedly discovered 103 grams of marijuana that had been hidden inside a shoebox, as well as several baggies that authorities believe were used to package cannabis.
After reportedly finding the illegal drugs, police arrested the driver and the two passengers. The Bergen County Prosecutor’s Office said that the 19-year-old driver was the main seller of the marijuana, while the two teenage passengers were his co-conspirators who helped him sell the drugs in the borough.
The main suspect, a local man who lives in Bergenfield, faces several criminal charges, including marijuana distribution, drug paraphernalia possession, and distribution of a controlled dangerous substance (CDS) in the area of a public park. If the suspect is eventually convicted of distributing marijuana, he would be subject to a sentence of 5-10 years in New Jersey State Prison.
The two teen suspects, both of whom also reside in Bergenfield, NJ, have also been charged with possession of marijuana with intent to distribute.
