Hackensack Police Arrest Two New York Men Allegedly in Possession of Cocaine
Bergen County police arrested two New York men driving through Hackensack NJ and allegedly carrying illegal drugs in their vehicle.
According to prosecutors, Hackensack cops stopped the suspects’ car and approached the vehicle. That’s when the police officers allegedly noticed a firearm in plain sight. Police subsequently alerted the Bergen County Sheriff’s Department and the Bergen County Prosecutors’ Office, with both law enforcement agencies sending additional officers to the scene to provide assistance.
Authorities eventually obtained a search warrant and conducted a search of the suspects’ motor vehicle. The search reportedly led to the discovery of an automatic weapon and four kilograms of cocaine with an estimated street value of roughly $200,000.
Police arrested the two NY men and took them to Hackensack police headquarters for processing. The suspects include a 31-year-old Springfield Gardens resident and a 32-year-old Brooklyn resident.
The suspects are charged with numerous crimes, including possession with intent to distribute cocaine and illegal possession of a firearm.
After being placed under arrest and charged, the suspects were transported to the Bergen County Jail in Hackensack, NJ. They were being held at the correctional facility on separate $150,000 bail amounts.
