Another Drug Bust at the Garden State Plaza in Paramus New Jersey
It is unclear from the initial reports released by the Bergen County Narcotics Task Force whether or not they were actually conducting surveillance on the two Defendants or just the parking lots at the Garden State Plaza Mall in Paramus, New Jersey when they witnessed what turned out to be another major drug bust. After watching the Defendants walk back and forth from their vehicles several times they decided to stop the two. In doing so, they discovered that they were in possession of more than a 1/3 of a pound of cocaine. As a result of their discovery, the Defendant’s were both arrested and charged with possession of more than 1/2 ounce of cocaine with the intent to distribute, a crime of the first degree. The Defendants are both currently being held in the Bergen County Jail on a $100,000 bail.
