Man arrested for drug crimes near park and school

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.

The arrest was made at a location within 500 feet from a public park and within 1,000 feet of a school. The man has been released from custody but now faces charges of drug possession and drug possession with the intent to distribute. His release was granted with supervision and other conditions although exactly what those conditions are remains unknown. The 22-year-old man also has another drug case pending.

When multiple criminal charges are faced, defendants may feel little hope. It is at these times that talking with an attorney may be helpful as an experienced lawyer can give people insight into their options for a defense.
