Drug charges for pair of New Jersey men

A traffic stop led to further charges for a pair of local men recently. Police stopped their car for an expired inspection sticker and, upon further investigation, arrested the two for drug charges in addition to the traffic charges. The two New Jersey men are likely preparing a criminal defense against the charges against them. 

On Monday, Sept. 18, two patrolmen allegedly noticed an expired inspection sticker on the car as they were monitoring traffic. They stopped the car for the apparent violation, and when officers approached the car, they allegedly spotted two empty wax packets for storing heroin in the back seat. The officers supposedly noticed fresh track marks on the passenger and asked the man to step out of the vehicle. As he did, allegedly the officer observed a hypodermic syringe fall out of the man's shoe. 

The policemen then performed a search of the vehicle. The search allegedly turned up 55 wax packets of heroin, multiple empty wax packets and a pre-loaded hypodermic syringe. The driver was charged with traffic violations in addition to the drug violations. The two men were then arrested and taken to headquarters for processing. 

One of the men -- the driver -- supposedly took ownership of all of the drugs except for the needle that fell out of the passenger's shoe. They were both booked with drug charges. In New Jersey, an individual facing criminal charges has the right to an attorney. A knowledgeable criminal defense attorney can help in getting criminal charges reduced or eliminated.
