Parked car leads New Jersey police to arrests on drug charges

Several people were arrested in New Jersey on possession of drug charges while parked near a local carnival. Police officers approached a vehicle on the Flanders Road side of Turkey Brook Park and spoke with the passenger inside. During the conversation with the 20-year-old-female, the officials detected the smell of marijuana and noticed a pipe in plain view. The female explained she was waiting for a friend who had gone to the carnival, which had already closed.

Another female, also 20, returned to the car and said she was the driver. At that time, police searched the vehicle and allegedly uncovered some marijuana, rolling papers and a pipe that had recently contained smoked marijuana. Officers noticed another individual nearby but proceeded to arrest the two females and transported them to the station.

A third individual, a 33-year-old male, arrived to pick up the females at the headquarters and officers discovered he had prior warrants in other states for parole violations. He had also been involved in the sale and distribution of marijuana for the 20-year-old women. All three were charged with possession of paraphernalia and possession of marijuana. They were released to await a court hearing.

After police continued the investigation, they discovered a fourth individual who had allegedly bought the marijuana from the two women the previous night. The fourth man, 20, from North Carolina, was arrested and taken back to headquarters on the same charges.

The North Carolina man reportedly showed police officers his motor home where more paraphernalia was discovered.

In New Jersey, the possession of marijuana can carry fines and jail time, depending on the amount and circumstances. Normally the sale and distribution or use of drug paraphernalia is a misdemeanor but circumstances may vary. You shouldn't navigate the legal system on your own, so if you have been charged with any of these offenses, it can affect your student status or result in a criminal record. You need to seek assistance from a person who can help you resolve your drug charges so you can move on with your life and secure your future.
