Before a New Jersey resident can be arrested and charged with a crime, officers must be able to show that there is probable cause to support such action. This probably cause can come in a variety of forms. For one man from View Court, reports indicate that the witness of police officers was part of what was put forth as probable cause to arrest him recently.
No real details are given as to what the officers witnessed but it is said that during a traffic stop, items were found in the defendant's vehicle that constituted evidence. This evidence was also part of the probable cause that led to his arrest in Jersey City. The evidence includes 30 containers that had a substance in them believed to be cocaine. Also found were paper wax folds that authorities suggest contained heroin.
