Two Paterson NJ men were recently arrested for selling Molly to undercover officers during undercover sting operations in Garfield, New Jersey.
According to law enforcement, the arrests were made as a result of undercover operations conducted by detectives with the Bergen County Prosecutor’s Office Narcotic Task Force.
On one occasion, a detective with the task force allegedly bought 30 grams of Molly from a 28-year-old suspect in Garfield. On another occasion, a different undercover officer allegedly purchased 120 grams of Molly from the same suspect.
Authorities later seized the drugs involved in the transactions. Authorities believe that the drugs have a street value of roughly $5,000.
At some point during the investigation, police learned that another person had a major role in the illegal drug sales; the 23-year-old man was reportedly waiting around in a car nearby while the other suspect sold the Molly.
According to Bergen County prosecutors, the 23-year-old suspect was “an integral part of the narcotics transaction.”
The 28-year-old suspect was charged with distributing Molly. The 23-year-old suspect was also charged with distribution of Molly because police believe he was a co-conspirator.
After being arrested and processed, the suspects were transported to the Bergen County Jail in Hackensack, NJ. They are each being held at the jail on separate $75,000 bail amounts.
