According to authorities, the three suspects were involved in a paintball shooting incident at a business in Lodi New Jersey sometime around midnight.
Not long after the paintball shooting, a Garfield police officer saw a car with three men who matched the descriptions provided by Lodi NJ police. The officer stopped the suspects’ car and conducted an investigation.
Once the Garfield officer determined that the suspects were wanted in connection with the Lodi paintball incident, he arrested the vehicle’s occupants.
Police later searched the suspects’ car and allegedly discovered hundreds of prescription pills, inducing oxycodone, Xanax, and morphine. Police officers also reportedly found a small amount of marijuana in the car.
Additionally, the search allegedly turned up the paintball gun used in the Lodi NJ shooting incident.
One of the suspects is from Hoboken NJ, while the other two suspects are from Jersey City.
After being arrested and processed, the three suspects were taken to the Bergen County Jail in Hackensack, NJ. Two of the suspects are being held at the correctional facility on separate $25,000 bail amounts; the third suspect is being held at the jail in lieu of $40,000 bail.
