Two Men Charged with Heroin Distribution in Paramus, NJ

Bergen County Drug Crime AttorneysParamus law enforcement arrested two men and charged them with distribution of heroin in Bergen County, NJ.

A Paramus NJ cop was driving along Route 17 North in Paramus when he reportedly noticed a grey 2007 Dodge Charger traveling above the speed limit. The patrol officer stopped the vehicle and began to question the suspects inside.

The driver, a 20-year-old man from Albany, New York, reportedly set off alarm bells by acting suspiciously while being questioned by the cop. This prompted a police search of the motor vehicle – a search that reportedly led to the discovery of 1,800 bags of heroin with an approximate street resale value of $15,000.

The driver was placed under arrest and charged with a drug offense for possession of heroin with intent to distribute. The passenger, a 45-year-old man from Jersey City, was also placed under arrest and charged with heroin distribution.
