Young New Jersey man arrested on drug charges

Sleeping in a running vehicle led to the arrest of one man recently. The New Jersey man was allegedly found to be in possession of suspected marijuana and paraphernalia when authorities approached him. He was later booked on drug charges.

At least one witness was alerted to the presence of the man's car and alerted the police. It was early in the morning after responding to reports of a suspicious vehicle that the authorities found the man in his car with it running. Police awakened the man to determine whether there was a problem. The car was parked in the parking lot of a local pool. 

The man eventually woke up and spoke with authorities. During the interaction, the police officer claimed to detect an odor of marijuana and proceeded to investigate. A baggie containing suspected marijuana and a metal pipe with suspected marijuana residue was later found to be in the driver's possession. The 19-year-old suspect was arrested, booked and later released on his own recognizance. 

In New Jersey, drug charges like the marijuana charge that this man is facing can be detrimental to a person's lifestyle. An individual charged with a criminal drug offense will likely want to defend against the charges in order to avoid consequences to his or her lifestyle, career and finances. Individuals are innocent until proved guilty in the state and also have the right to consult with an attorney. An experienced criminal defense attorney can be helpful in building a strong criminal defense against allegations of crime.
