2 New Jersey people face drug charges

Following a tip about a couple sitting in a parked car in a Quick Chek parking lot, two New Jersey individuals were arrested by police on multiple drug-related charges.

When police found them in the car, they both appeared to be under the influence. A 19-year-old female from Middletown was arrested and charged with multiple charges of possession of prescription legend drugs without a valid prescription, possession of prescription legend drugs, possession of prescription legend drugs not in original container and being under the influence of above drugs.

The other occupant of the vehicle, 20-year-old-man from Byram, was also charged with being under the influence of a prescription legend drug. He is also out waiting for a municipal court date in Byram.

When the officers arrived, they noted the woman was in possession of two different containers of Alprazolam. They discovered the containers were not the type a pharmacy would use.

According to police, after she was arrested and taken to the station, officers decided her physical condition had gotten worse, so Lakeland Emergency Squad arrived to and transported her to an area hospital. As a safeguard her companion was also taken to the hospital.

In the state of New Jersey, if you are charged with possession of drugs, the penalties will depend on the amount and type of drug you have. Possession is often compounded by intent to distribute. Those charges carry stiffer penalties as well as jail time. It is important that you seek help from an experienced legal professional who understands the law and can act and advise you on your behalf.
