Two individuals were going about their day when it suddenly took an unexpected turn. Authorities allegedly observed a driver speeding on New Jersey Route 15 and conducted a traffic stop. The events of that traffic stop led to traffic and drug charges for the pair.
The van was green and so, apparently, was the stuff inside. Police from the Port Authority recently stopped a green van in New Jersey that was heading toward New York City via the Holland Tunnel. The van was stopped after a toll collector at the tunnel toll booth noticed a strong marijuana smell emanating from the vehicle. The driver is now facing drug charges.
A traffic stop resulted in criminal charges for two women. The women face traffic violations and drug charges due to the condition of the vehicle and possession of a small amount of marijuana. The New Jersey stop was an unexpected buzz kill for the residents, who are from a neighboring state.
Weapons, drugs and paraphernalia were recovered after two searches in relation to a plot to kill a local police officer. A New Jersey man was reported for allegedly making claims that he intended to kill an Asbury Park police officer, leading authorities to search the man's home. While there, officers recovered illegal items and served drug charges.
A major bust has allegedly nabbed several people believed to be involved in a trafficking ring. Fifteen people were indicted on racketeering, trafficking and drug charges in New Jersey recently. A new story gives more details about the bust and the arrests made.
In Middlesex County, and New Jersey in general, drug charges can come with some very severe consequences. This is especially true when what might have been a basic possession charge becomes possession with intent to distribute. There are three elements that must exist in order for a "possession with the intent to distribute" charge to be valid under federal law.
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.
In a tragic case, one woman is looking at serious consequences related to an incident involving her child. The New Jersey resident was found passed out in her car, with her 2-year-old child dead in the backseat. She was booked on a total of nine charges, including neglect and drug charges.
Two individuals are dealing with the consequences of criminal charges as a result of an August incident. A traffic violation has resulted in additional drug charges for two men in New Jersey. A recent police report offers more details about the event.
