Police officers pulled over the suspects’ vehicle, a blue 2013 Acura, around exit 2 of the Palisades Interstate Parkway. Police stopped the vehicle because it appeared to have tinted brake light covers and tinted windows.
When police walked toward the vehicle, they reportedly detected the smell of pot coming from inside the car. Police questioned the two vehicle occupants, 22-year-old males from NY, to exit the car.
Police subsequently searched the passenger and reportedly discovered a switchblade knife.
Additionally, police reportedly found 400 wax fold envelopes of heroin. According to officials, the heroin weighed nearly five ounces and has an estimated street value of roughly $6,600.
After being placed under arrest and charged, the suspects were moved to the Bergen County Jail in Hackensack, NJ. They were each being held at the correctional facility on separate $35,000 bail amounts.
