The Lyndhurst Police Department and the Bergen County Prosecutor’s Office started a joint investigation into the husband-and-wife suspects after getting a tip about illegal drug activity at the home, which is located on Summit Avenue in Lyndhurst, NJ.
Gurbir S. Grewal, acting Bergen County NJ prosecutor, stated that the investigation resulted in solid evidence showing that the suspects sold illicit narcotics from their Lyndhurst house. Lyndhurst investigators eventually obtained a search warrant to enter the residence.
Before Lyndhurst NJ cops executed the search warrant, they conducted surveillance and reportedly saw a 24-year-old Rutherford woman exiting the house and leaving in a motor vehicle. Police soon pulled over the suspect and allegedly found her in a possession of a small quantity of heroin. The woman was then arrested and charged with possession of heroin.
Bergen County detectives and Lyndhurst police officers later raided the Lyndhurst NJ home and allegedly discovered heroin, cocaine, and drug packaging materials. The detectives also reportedly found an illegal firearm inside the residence.
The suspects, a 38-year-old man and a 34-year-old woman who are believed to be married, were placed under arrest. They face numerous criminal charges, including distribution of heroin, distribution of cocaine, possession of drug paraphernalia, and illegal handgun possession.
After being placed under arrest and processed, the male suspect was taken to the Bergen County Jail in Hackensack, NJ. Meanwhile, the female suspect was released on her own recognizance.
