NJ police recently arrested two teens accused of selling marijuana in Bergen County, NJ.
According to law enforcement, the two 18-year-old suspects distributed marijuana throughout the county. After police learned of the illegal activity, they opened an investigation into the suspects. The Bergen County Prosecutor’s Narcotics Task Force, the Bergen County Sheriff’s Department, and the New Milford Police Department worked together on a joint investigation and eventually obtained enough evidence to place the suspects under arrest.
Authorities executed a search warrant at a home in New Milford and reportedly found a large quantity of marijuana, as well as a digital scale and several plastic baggies. Police also allegedly discovered an imitation HK45 handgun at the residence.
The suspects were arrested and charged with marijuana possession with intent to distribute. Moreover, the suspects face enhanced penalties if convicted because they allegedly had the marijuana within 1,000 feet of school property.
One of the suspects lives in New Milford, NJ, while the other suspect lives in Westwood NJ. They both face significant penalties if convicted on the marijuana distribution charges.
After being arrested and charged, the suspects were remanded to the Bergen County Jail in Hackensack, NJ. They were each being held at the correctional facility on separate $35K bail amounts.
