Bergen County law enforcement recently arrested two men who allegedly distributed heroin from a car dealership in Elizabeth NJ. Police also reportedly found a large amount of heroin in the suspects’ motor vehicle in Ridgefield Park, New Jersey.
The two drug dealing suspects are a 43-year-old Linden NJ man and a 44-year-old Westfield NJ man. Authorities got a tip about illegal drug transactions and started an investigation into the suspects.
Investigators later obtained search warrants for the suspects’ property, including a silver 2005 Chevrolet Equinox parked in Ridgefield Park and Emporium Auto Sales in Elizabeth, NJ. When members of the Bergen County Prosecutor’s Office Narcotics Task Force executed the search warrants, they allegedly found in excess of one kilogram of heroin, a kilogram press machine, digital scales, kilogram wrappers, and more than $10,000 believed to represent proceeds from illegal drug sales.
Police placed the two suspects under arrest and charged them with multiple drug offenses, including distribution of heroin and possession of drug paraphernalia.
After being arrested and charged, the suspects were transported to the Bergen County Jail in Hackensack, NJ.
