New Jersey felon held on gun and drug charges

A run-in with the law can leave a person dealing with heavy consequences, such as losing his or her freedom and facing other fines and penalties. Recently, police reported that a local man was caught with drugs and guns. The individual has a history of weapons charges, and the current bust has left him with both gun and drug charges. He is currently being held in a New Jersey county jail, pending trial. 

The 40-year-old man was allegedly caught with two guns and 85 grams of cocaine. His arrest was supposedly in relation to an investigation and surveillance that led officers to move to arrest the man. In addition to the drugs and guns, numerous baggies and a scale were also found. 

He has been charged with possession of a handgun, possession of a gun for a criminal purpose and possession of a gun by a felon. Reportedly, one of the guns was stolen, and the man was charged with receiving stolen property. The drug charges consist of possession and distribution charges. The authorities report that the incident happened within a school zone as well. 

Due to the man's history as a felon and the seriousness of the drug charges, the prosecution has asked that the man remain detained during the course of the court case. A case like this can have a person considering his or her options to reduce or eliminate the charges. During a challenging time when a person is facing criminal allegations in New Jersey, he or she can choose to hire a defense attorney with experience who can help build a strong defense against the charges.
